The Sonoqui (pronounced so-NO-kee) Wash Trail is a 5.8 mile multi-use trail through the community of Queen Creek, Arizona. The rural trail weaves through aesthetic native desert, and is open to both pedestrians and equestrians. It begins at the Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Center on Riggs Road and heads northwest along the wash.

Sonoqui Wash Trail Reviews

Fun and relaxing bike ride

This is an easy bike ride. Lots of horses to look at. Park at the equestrian center. Restroom off to the left as you drive into the equestrian center. Finding the trailhead: Turn off of Riggs Rd and drive in the front entrance of the equestrian center. As you drive under the big entrance sign look to your immediate left. The trailhead starts there with a map of the trail. The first 1/8 mile is packed dirt/pea gravel, but it quickly turns into asphalt.

Nice trail

This is a nice paved trail, not flat but no big hills. Once on the trail, I only saw one road that had to be crossed while running, the others had underpasses which was nice. This does go partially along a flood zone, so that doesn't happen often but I wouldn't go there after a heavy day/night of rain. Plenty of parking at the Horse Park. I didn't see any obvious restrooms or water fountains. I didn't like the fact that you had to cross Riggs Rd to get to the trail. Riggs Rd is getting widened and about to become a main rd for traffic patterns around the area. It's 5 or 6 lanes wide and no close lights or crosswalks to cross at. All things considered, I'm local so I'll def be back for more runs here. Thankful for all the trails we get to enjoy!

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Easy parking at the Equestrian Center. Very nice asphalt path through the wash. Pleasant vegetation and vegetation with plenty of wildlife. The old stagecoach well was interesting and with the covered bench seating a pleasant rest stop. This is a solid short trail for a quick ride in the desert. Note this is a portion of the Maricopa County Trail system so it will be getting longer, eventually.
