So maybe you already knew there are stretches of public trail in certain areas alongside the CAP canal.
Do you know where some of the developed sections of this multi-use trail begin and end?
We’ve developed maps of certain segments of the CAP Trail that are in our three-county service area of Pima, Pinal and Maricopa counties.
The trail is for multiple non-motorized recreational uses: walking, jogging, equestrian, cycling and roller blading.
See the printable maps (click on each title to view):
- This hike (or ride) begins near the Waddell Pump/Generating Plant and CAP’s storage reservoir, Lake Pleasant – two crucial components of the CAP system. 4 miles.
- The Pinal/Pima County line marks the start of this trek that heads southeast along the canal. Approx. 8 miles.
- This trail crosses by the Deem Hills Recreation Area – watch out for the steep hill! Approx. 9 miles.
- This stretch begins near CAP’s Red Rock Pumping Plant, which lifts water more than 200 vertical feet! Approx. 9 miles.
- You can enter this trail at the western end of the Reach 11 Recreation area. Approx. 7 miles.
Print these out, take them on your next hike, ride or run, and maybe think about the reliable deliveries of Colorado River water taking place nearby at the CAP canal.
