It's a trail oh wait its also a road

Likely In-Season!
This description starts from the Moon rock trail at the northwest end Levee trail. The trail starts out as a wide single track trail and heads south. It connects up with the Channel Trail at the start of the flood control channel. Shortly after this the trail becomes a wide gravel level service road used by the Flood Control District for Levee inspection. Shortly after the trail becomes the service road you can see the McKellips Rd and Crismon curve. This is a popular trailhead for mountain bikers and many people access the park trail system from here. The trail continues east on the southern boundary of Usery Mountain Park. As you continue east on the trail you will pass the Crimon Wash trail, Norso Trail, Amigos Wash Trail and the Nighthawk Wash trial. Please make sure to use the ramps when crossing the flood control channel to access the other connecting trails so you don't erode the Levee. On the south side of the Levee there are residential street access points to the park that are marked with sign. You reach the end of the trail when you arrive at the Spillway trailhead. The Service road continues but not as a marked part of the park trail system. This trail makes for an easy hike or mountain bike ride and is very wide and level. The elevation provided by the levee it is set on top of provides good views of Usery Park, Goldfield Mountains, Pass Mountain, Usery Pass, Superstitions and the San Tans.
