This trail runs along the Durango Regional Conveyance Channel, which is a large retention basin and channel overseen by the Flood Control District of Maricopa County. Running along the channel is a flat, wide dirt trail that stretches from 107th Avenue to 75th Avenue, just south of Lower Buckeye Road.


To access the trail from 107th Avenue, park along the east side of the road about 10 yards north of the trail. 107th Avenue has a wide dirt shoulder that allows safe parking. Look for the power lines that run east/west and the trail follows the power line and retention channel. This is a fairly nondescript trail that intersects subdivisions and farm fields. The trail has been landscaped with palo verde trees providing shade along portions of the trail. In addition there is a fitness path along a portion of the trail, so you can sneak in some pullups or pushups while you are hiking or running.

Overall nothing too exciting about this trail, but it is a easily accessed spot if you want to stretch your legs for a short hike or run.
