This hike is a line, therefore not a loop. You could walk down and back. Maybe have someone drop you off at one end and then they pick you up at the other end.

There are 4.7 miles of paves path. If you want to walk the wash-bottom equestrian trail it is 5.5 miles.

The trail has many access points. Click here for the town map of the trail.

You can park your car at Desert Mountain Park, 22201 Hawes Rd, Queen Creek, AZ 85142. Then walk north across the street to enter the trail and walk wither east or west.

There are signs at Desert Mountain Park to park on the north side of the street if you have horse trailers.

Multi-Use

Whether are you riding a horse, riding a bike, or taking a walk, this trail is for you. There are paved areas for those who want a smooth walking or riding surface. In the wash, itself is the sand where many horse riders will be.

Very common rules that you will see on most trails. Such as stay on the right side of the path. Pass on the left. Do not disturb wildlife. Do not litter. If you are walking dogs- clean up after your animals. Keep pets on a leash.

Do you wonder who has the right of way? Bikers yield to walkers/runners and horses. Walkers/runners yield to horses.

Flora and Fauna

We took many photos of the wildflowers. The wildlife quails were fast and hard to catch on film. It was warm out when we were walking. I trust in the cooler hours there would be plenty of rabbits and birds. See if you can identify the mesquite trees vs the pala verde trees.

  1. I love a good trail. I was going to ask about the temps, but you answered my question. Definitely go in the cooler weather.

  2. This looks like an interesting hike and not too extreme for beginners. I learned years ago that I don’t like to hike Arizona in the heat so I agree on waiting until the weather is cooler!

  3. Queen Creek Wash Trail looks like a great place to bike. Are there any cool places to stop off along the way?
