Bicycling Trails

Bike Along The Paseo Consolidated Canal 

Named a Bicycle Friendly Community, Gilbert is well-known for its Central Trail System, offering  135 miles of enjoyment for outdoor enthusiasts. Along with equestrian tracks, there are more than 54 miles of marked bike trails where you can ride along the canals. The Consolidated Canal Path runs north-south along the entire length of the Consolidated Canal, an 18-mile-long waterway dating back to 1891. The route consists of both a paved path and a gravel-surfaced trail—more popular with horseback riders and joggers—on opposite sides of the canal for all but two short stretches: only a gravel path is available between Warner Road and Lindsay Road in Gilbert and from Riggs Road to Hunt Highway in Chandler.

The gentle-grade path connects Chandler (where it is also known as the Paseo Trail), Gilbert (known here as the Heritage Trail), and Mesa as it winds through neighborhoods, farms, and parks. Waterfowl and fish can be spotted in the canal, and fishing is permitted. One highlight along the route is the Paseo Vista Recreation Area in Chandler, a 64-acre park atop a former landfill that offers a large archery facility, playground, and disc golf. In Gilbert, trail users can pick up the Western Canal Path to head towards Phoenix. From the trail's northern endpoint in Mesa, continue west on the Tempe Canal Path or head north on the Southern Canal Path to enter the Salt River Pima–Maricopa Indian Community.  Access Gilbert’s Interactive Bicycle Trail Map
