Mountain bikingGreat!

Whether you're looking for a flat, fast out and back, or a nice walking trail, this is it! The trail is well maintained and offers a variety of routes on concrete and blacktop. Plenty of designated rest areas, but bring your own water. Easy to access and plenty of parking.

Nice and easy trail. The community center is very busy, but once you get on a trail, it’s not bad. Trail is nicely paved- I wish it was marked a little better. Today was my first time there, and there were quite few turns and options, so I had to stop to see where each turn was leading. Otherwise, the area fell pretty nice and safe, until I got to the bridge before Bell Rd and saw all of the homeless people sleeping under that bridge. That was my end point for the trail.

Amazing trail! I started in the middle(ish) I believe.. there is a parking lot next to a park. I went right after crossing the road and left at the bridge, and right over the bridge. Keep right if you want to continue on the trail, otherwise it will end a mile or so down the path. Keeping to the right and over a small bridge the trail is about 10 miles maybe a little less. It is wonderfully paved! Wide enough to have bikers, jogger, dogs walking with plenty of room to pass. It has some small hills and turns but I found this to make the longer 30+ miles ride to be very enjoyable. It also has plenty of place along the tail where you could pull off and grab extra beverages. I got a Powerade at the Arby’s for example. So over amazing trail!

Great paved trail along New River (West) and Skunk Creek (East). We parked at the Peoria Veterans Memorial Park, located just north of Thunderbird road on the east side of New River. Get you water and go potty at the facilities in the park as there are none along the trails. Keep and eye and an ear open for bicyclists as they move along at a pretty good clip. Most cyclists shout out as they’re passing but keep to the right side of the trail in case they don’t. Lots of birds along the river/creek bed for bird watchers. Please be sure to pickup after your dogs. We noticed many dog owners did not which detracted from an otherwise beautiful inner city hike. Enjoy!

I would recommend this trail for children, dogs, and bicyclists. it is very clean and paved. Not much of an incline. Lots of trees and some wildlife.

Love the New River trails but noticed since moving into the neighborhood along 85th Ave in Peoria, that a lot of motorized motorcycles, 4-wheelers, mopeds and 3-wheelers are racing up and down all hours of the night along the trail. First of all, are there suppose to be motorized vehicle allowed? And if not, is this been a problem in the past? Also are these trails being monitored in the evenings especially Friday night thru Sunday night?

Easy trail that allows lots of opportunities to see wildlife given its proximity to Rio Vista Park. When water is present in the wash or canal, there are quite a lot of bugs. The trail along the canal is not very well-lit at night and bikes do tend to utilize the same path, so avoid using earbuds or walking alone to keep yourself safe. Overall, this trail makes for a relaxing walk or bike. I'd recommend bringing a good friend to chat with while you go!

Explored this trail on my bike and it was a nice ride. I access it on Peoria ave and continue until I got tired. It was paved, great for all ages, dogs were on leash and it had neat views of the desert wash.
