These canals also offer over 38 miles of multi-purpose banks that are popular with bicylists and joggers. If you have never walked, biked or run the canal paths of Phoenix, it’s time.

Arizona is one of few states that has an approved bicycle route that runs across the state. U.S. Bicycle Route 90 runs 573 miles from the Colorado River to the New Mexico border.

More than 60 miles of trails along the canal banks are open for walking, running and bicycling. Development is underway for an additional 336 miles.
