Rillito River Park Trail

Rillito River Park Trail

February, 2019 by thejake91739

Back in February of 2014 we completed a weekday morning ride from the Rillito River Park Access parking lot to trails end at Craycroft Road and then back.
Great Arizona winter weather, beautiful mountain vistas, artful bridges, and a fairly flat, smooth trail made this ride a delight (although we did notice it seemed ever so slightly downhill which made for some easy pedaling on the way to Craycroft Road).
The trail was especially popular with walkers, joggers, and roadrunners, so be alert.
It didn't take us long to complete the loop, so for a couple of tourists from SoCal we used the afternoon to visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum!

Consolidated Canal Path

Bike the Canal

February, 2019 by desidmcconnell

A terrific path. We biked it from 8th Street & Harris to Downtown Gilbert. It was quiet, not crowded and a great day!

Mountain Park Ranch - Lakewood Trail

Not worth the trouble

January, 2019 by dtims256

Some busy streets to cross with no crosswalk or lights. For the most part not user friendly. Some parts of trail are very nice but crossing streets with cars going 60 miles an hour is not safe.

Cave Creek Wash Trail

Poorly marked, trash, trails abruptly end

January, 2019 by mlark

There were small portions of the trail starting at the northern end that were nice (Union Hills and 4th) but within a half mile it quickly became trashy. The trails end abruptly and you’re left without a clue which direction to ride. Pressing south the trails became filled with trash and debris until you hit the golf course. There things started looking better but the asphalt along the course was rough and the lawn mowers spewed the cut grass and rocks onto the trail. I’m tempted to start my ride again at the golf course heading south and see how that looks. As I told my friend - there were two things I liked about that ride: 1) the weather was nice and 2) I was in my bicycle. This ride falls to the bottom of my list of trails in this area!

Mohave and Milltown Railroad Trail

Take a miss on this experience.

December, 2018 by judilmcintosh

Nothing to see, only Razors and dust.

Arizona Canal Path

great to ride in AZ in December

December, 2018 by bkel

Fun ride, but misleading. We got on at N 68th Street in Scottsdale, and it is neither paved or concrete. Very rough ride along the canal. Some parakeets in a tree and some other art along the way, but be advised it isn’t paved the whole way.

Tempe Canal Path

Scary

November, 2018 by sleezer101

The trail is scattered with homeless people, shopping carts, & trash. I don't feel safe. They need to patrol the canal roads & clean them up to make them safe.

El Paso & Southwestern Greenway

Nice

October, 2018 by contrerg65

This trail starts right next to the fire station with a little dedication area to the barrio that was there before Tucson urbanized the area. The "trail" is a paved 2 lane walkway with benches and nice landscaping. Once you come upon the old railroad tracks there's another interactive area giving the history of the railroads that ran through the area. As you round the corner, there is a cute gazebo and a mural. This is a nice place to learn some Tucson history.

Cave Creek Tributary Trail

A lot of gravel

September, 2018 by tmd.dunn

If you are rollerblading, this trail has a fair amount of gravel. If you are an intermediate skater, then it’s probably not a major problem. I can definitely see a beginner taking a few spills.

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Nice trail

July, 2018 by jeffrogordo

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!

Rio Salado Pathway

Fun Ride

June, 2018 by res1due

First, the map shows the east end at Alma School Rd. The east end is at Dobson Rd. I was there 2 wks ago.
The trail is paved from Dobson to the 143. There is usually some water in the river east of Tempe Town Lake. You can get on/off at Riverview Park in Mesa, Tempe Marketplace, Tempe Town Lake and all the major streets you cross.
It looks like they are going to extend the trail from the 143 to about 32nd St. If they do it will be awesome to be able to ride from 19th Ave in Phoenix to Dobson Rd in Mesa.

High Country Trail

great trail for beginners and medium level riders

June, 2018 by gotthis2000

Great time hills not to steep and pretty decent trail we took our new tandem out for a great time.
