A new path has opened along the Crosscut Canal in Tempe, creating a new link through Papago Park and giving joggers and bicyclists a great hilltop view. The mile-long path connects to an existing 1.25-mile path, and it also completed a regional link in the Valley’s path system by connecting Tempe with Scottsdale.

The project includes a paved path, landscaping, solar lighting, public art, three bridges and retaining walls and railings. The new segment consolidates trails in Papago Park and helps preserve the Sonoran Desert. It was funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and Tempe’s transit tax.
