Queen Creek Wash Trail Description

The Queen Creek Wash Trail has a more rural feel than other trails in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Located within the community of Queen Creek, and following the banks of Queen Creek Wash, this trail passes open space, farmland and some smaller residential communities.

At the trail's southeastern end, Desert Mountain Park features several athletic fields, playgrounds and picnic shelters. The trail continues from there for a little over 1 mile and ends near a residential development, along East Village Loop Road. 

Two blocks west of the trail, travelers can also connect to the Sonoqui Wash Trail, a paved pathway spanning nearly 6 miles.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Queen Creek Wash Trail is available at Desert Mountain Park (22201 S. Hawes Road) in Queen Creek.

Queen Creek Wash Trail Reviews

We started at Desert Mountain Park and went NW to the end at Power, then all the way back to the other end, then back to the park, making a 10+ mile round trip. There are underpasses for roads and thick trees in places with wildlife, really lovely.

nature at is finest

Hawks! Roadrunners! Bunnies! Quail! Coyotes! Many more beautiful things to see!!!

best bike trail

No streets to cross!!!! Beautiful nature trail!

Beautiful and Shady

We connected this with the parallel Sono. Trail jut south to make a nice ~14 mile loop, parking at the Chapman Horse Arena. This was DELIGHTFUL, especially compared to other trails in the NW Valley where we live and a stark contrast to the canal trails in Phoenix that have broken glass, trash and are dotted with belongings of transient/homeless. Busy early on a Saturday morning but people were friendly! Primarily residential and foresee that Queen Creek may well extend this as the population continues to explode. VERY NICE and kudos to the city for this amazing amenity!


very nice for beginners

Flat for the most part, just long enough at 10 miles round trip! Some nice views too.

Easy, relaxed ride

Trail goes behind houses along a dry creek bed. Restrooms are located at a couple of places in the park, which is approximately midway along the length of this trail.


It's such a beautiful park & the trail is going to be connected to the Sonoqui Trail! The Q.C. Wash Trail leads to another new park in Queen Creek That has fishing, & a fun splash pad. Both parks, & all the trails are just stunning. Everything is well maintained. I take my little girl to both parks & both trails. We ride our bikes, walk our dog, & she rides her scooter too. She loves it all as much as I do.

Excellent Trail

Has been extended and is now almost 5 miles long. Also, you do not have to cross ANY roads. Underpasses have been built on all. During our ride today we saw a coyote, roadrunner and several jackrabbits. Well maintained. In fact today a trail worker was blowing sand off the asphalt! Don't see that on our Wisconsin trails.


Longer than listed

This trail is great. It is all asphalt and very smooth with beautiful scenery and a view of the mountains. It is actually almost exactly five miles long not the 2.3 that is listed. It also has bypasses under most road crossings. The only negative is that it gets a lot of use on the weekends.

Enter at Queen Creek Park & Rec for ample parking

Here from out of town looking for a nice path away from traffic, GPS directed us to a residential neighborhood. We entered the path on opposite end (of title suggestion), which was unmarked and very hard/frustrating to find. Once we made our way to the fully paved path we saw lots of wildlife (rabbits, roadrunners & other birds). A few cool underpasses and smooth, thorn - free ride. We learned NOT to ride over grass or through unmarked trail after 3 (of 4) flat tires the previous day.

I love this trail on my Trikke

On top of being a fun trail to Trikke Original poly wheel it is smooth on well maintain and not to many steep hills but there is some small ones that will help you work on your trikke climbing skills. On the a trikke it took me 1 hour to complete the whole trail starting at desert mountain park to Power Rd and back. I love it and going to do this trail 4 times a week

Queen Creek Wash Trail

I love this trail! It is the closest to my house, which makes it convienent for me to use on a regular basis. They recently just completed a section of the trail that now provides a connection to the Desert Mountain Park without having to cross the busy roads. This allows you to park there and use the facilities before you hit the trail. There is also a dog pick-up bag station as you leave the park, so you can get prepared to clean up after your dog on the trail. A group of my dog-loving friends met and walked this trail together with our dogs just this past Sunday. It was a relaxing walk and the dogs saw lots of bunnies along the way to get excited about. While we were on the trail the Maricopa Sherriff even came through patroling the trail! I highly recommend this trail!
