This is a very smooth trail, but way to many road crossings. In some sections, about .4 miles apart. We biked about 25 miles today, and averaged about 8 mph. Sadly, seems like all trails in Mesa are similar to this.
I love this trail. They did some work on the path and it is really bumpy for road bikes. You can ride to Power and head over to Sonoqui. I can get a good 22 miles in on this loop. Pros: I feel very safe on this trail. You are by houses and no matter the time of day other people are out. Cons: really bumpy for a road bike
This is an asphalt and concrete trail only if you ride on Shea Boulevard. You could easily get run over on a Shea.
Rio Vista Community Park a great hidden gem in the city. Path poorly marked, ended up zigzagging back to be on the correct path.
An all time favorite bike pathway with connections west to Phoenix or south to Tempe. Well-maintained and great scenic views through the parks. Best time- early am.,
Nice ride from Horizon Park or E Cactus Road to Tempe Town Lake at the Pedistrian Bridge
Good path only had one rode that need to be crossed. The rest have underpasses!Not a good as Queen Creek Wash, but a close second! You can also connect the two paths for a longer ride!
A must ride trail! We’ll Maintained trail all Asphalt! You can ride this trail uninterrupted because the path go under any major rides.
We took off midway at the park, very nice and scenic. Only thing we hoped for is a loop around Tempe Town Lake which we found out doesn't exist.
I love biking the canal systems.
I entered at 56th street just across the street from the 56th hydro power plant (this is really cool place to stop stretch and read some history).
The bike under passes were fine until 27th ave and there were two transients but easily passed. The I 17 underpass was a different story.
I got 1/4 down the slope and the entire tunnel was blocked with transients. There was no way to bike safely through. At this point I turned around and went on in another direction.
Decided to take my sister and her friend on this path. Had some difficulty finding the park with which to start. Got on the path and found it confusing, with no signs and then found several places where we had to cross major streets with no crossing area,,,so pretty dangerous. Not a well marked path.
Good trail, smooth and pretty flat other than a few minor hills. Great for kids and dogs, but busy with bikes and electric scooters so stay alert. No water or toilets along the whole trail and it could use more signs as the are some branches off it.
