A Sunday morning ride next to the waterways (mostly).

Arizona Canal

New River

Skunk Wash

Cave Creek Wash

pretty flat

Amazingly easy to get a good ride in the middle of the core of the Valley without much (mostly) traffic.

a few homeless people (background behind shopping carts) are a regular sight along the Arizona Canal. The toy display is not.


This is the first time that I have seen anything in the field related to the long-planned Sun Circle Trail. It is a system that will encompass the entire valley.

New River. Now with water flowing!

Crossing New River at Pinnacle Peak on way to Thunderbird Park. We could have gone further North along the river, but it looks like the path may have been underwater.

Surly. Cross Check.

Cave Creek wash channel. Interestingly empty.

The rain has been nice this Spring.

  1. I’ve also seen those Sun Circle Trail signs around, and have been looking online for a map of the trail…my thinking being that if it’s a trail, there’s a map of it somewhere. Since it sounds like the concept of the SCT has been around since the 60’s, a map would seem likely, but couldn’t find one online, not even a conceptual or plan map. Hmmm.

  2. yeah, I was going to link to it in the post but, you are correct – not much info on it. I may have it confused with The Maricopa Trail, which seems like a similar idea.
