Welcome to Arizona Trails, a World Of Arizona web series. Let’s explore the Sonoqui Wash Trail in Queen Creek, Arizona.
This trail currently has two trailheads, one on Power Road and the other at Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre, which offers public parking. End to end, the Sonoqui Wash Trail runs from Power Road to Ellsworth Road with a total travel distance of 3.8 miles.
Weaving in and out of rural desert landscapes, this multi-use trail provides a connection to local wildlife as well as a few communities along the way. Bird watchers have identified seventy species on the Sonoqui Wash Trail alone.
The trail offers a relatively flat paved and concrete travel surface, passing through often low lying areas, which are subject to flooding.
The Sonoqui Wash Trail is part of the Maricopa regional trail system, projected to cover an estimated seven hundred and fifty miles. This three-phase project plans a connection to the San Tan Mountain Regional Park through the Sonoqui Wash Trail.
Near the east end of the trail, there are access points to several neighborhoods as you travel along Riggs Road and beyond the Ellsworth underpass.
Thanks for watching, and see you next time on Arizona Trails, a World Of Arizona web series.
Queen Creek Multi-Use Trail Expansion
Queen Creek plans to connect the Queen Creek Wash and Sonoqui Creek Wash trails, creating an 11-mile loop as the heart of the town’s trail system. This project will progress as the communities develop over time. It is also notable that Maricopa County is growing its regional trail system in several phases. It has plans to connect an estimated 750 miles of trail, including a connection to the San Tan Mountain Regional Park through the Sonoqui Wash Trail. That’s a lot to get excited about…yay progress!
