Easy hike for my four-year-old and six-year-old. Beautiful views of the fountain and an inside view to fountain Hills living.

Nice and easy...

Nicely paved trail along a dried up river or wash. the trail shown on app is a small section of a larger trail system. we parked at Rio Vista Community Park to access the trail.

Eazy paved trail with connections to Skunk River Trail to AZ Canal Trail. No traffic crossings and places to stop for food, water, and restrooms.

Very nice paved bike trail that starts at 107th and Bethany Home on the south and takes you north basically until you get tired :). No river view but wasn’t surprised by that.

This is a great place to go with friends and family. you can walk the loop a couple times or walk the entire park. So much to do in one spot. This is a favorite place of mine!

The tunnel by coaster and castles is dangerous and nasty. Be aware of bad element.

Love the Vistancia Discovery Trail, beautiful mature desert landscaping, wildlife, lots of picnic areas and an exercise area.

The route is much longer.
It will take you all the way to ASU.

Also great for getting around Scottsdale.

Love to walk here daily when visiting. Enjoyable at sunset in summer.

Long paved path in the West valley. Good for walking, running or road biking without having to worry about vehicles or road crossings. It’s not actually a loop as the description says, but I do believe that is the ultimate goal if the path is ever extended as planned.

It is a nice walk but half the trail is closed off at the moment due to construction =( The park is beautiful and there is fishing on the lake.

While a simple walk, we went at sunset just prior to the fountain spraying. The scenery was beautiful and the mountains made for a majestic backdrop. My son rode his scooter the whole way around the paved path. Just a really fun place to visit.

Easy. I use this Paved path to ride my bike to train for hiking around the world. It goes under all roads so you don't have to worry about getting hit by a car. On the south end of the path it continues east for a long ways. Bring lots of water the water fountains taste really bad.

Great path but sections were you need to cross busy streets. Paved area is great but some areas have pebbles and ruts. Overall beautiful way to spend the day. Road 40kms.

Nice scenic easy paved bike trail. Need a bell on your bike for passing.

This park is great but be sure to plan your visit around the hour because that is when the 300 foot fountain. The fountain pumps out 7,000 US Gallons per second out of a 18 inch nozzle. The fountain is truly amazing and I recommend it for all ages. Also the fountain runs from 9am to 9pm so it will go off even at night because they have lights on the fountain.

Easy going, well groomed path, several places to exit the trail if needed, nice parks along the way, not too busy, completely enjoyable!!

This is nicely paved with some gentle rolling elevation change throughout. there are also a number of parks and playgrounds that this meanders through. It is marked private property as many people have mentioned, but if you have access it's a wonderful trail!

It was a nice walk to go on with my kiddos. The fountain goes off every hour on the hour from 9am-9pm - we got there at 3:05 when it was just finishing up. However we took a nice slow walk around, looking at the birds/ducks and enjoying the weather. Would have been a great place to bring UNO and a picnic basket. They had a cool playground area with a music section with tons of different actual percussion instruments for the kids to play with. Very cool. Will be back.

Nice flat, paved trail on the Island. Bikes go in one direction and walkers/runners in opposite direction so bikes won't sneak up behind you. Easy walk.

Great hike if you want to take a brief detour from the park’s paved trail. Recommend entering the trail near the parking lot if you want to be challenged with some uphill cardio.
