One of the nice things about Chandler is its trail system. In my opinion, the jewel of these trails is the Paseo Trail. The south end of the trail begins near the northeast corner of the Hunt Highway and Arizona Avenue. The trail then meanders north for a distance of 6.5 miles.
The trail consists of a 10’ wide multi-use concrete path which is generally on the east side of the Consolidated Canal. On the west side of the canal there is a dirt trail, perfect for equestrian types and their horses.
There are many superb subdivisions that offer homes with access to the Paseo Trail. With a home that is located near the Paseo Trail, a Chandler homeowner can enjoy walking, jogging, rollerblading and biking along the trail. Handicapped accessibility is also available.
The Paseo Trail can lead to some interesting locations such as the Paseo Vista recreation area which used to be a dump, literally. Now it features a children’s playground, frisbee golf, an archery range and an enormous dog park. Pets are welcome along the Chandler trail with dogs walking their owners a common sight.
