Sonoqui Wash Trail Project breaks ground in Queen Creek

Will cater to pedestrians and equestrians

Posted

Queen Creek has broken ground on the Sonoqui Wash Trail Project, which will stretch from Hawes Road to Crismon Road.

“The Sonoqui Wash trail is part of the town’s future 11-mile loop that connects the Queen Creek and Sonoqui Washes,” stated Queen Creek Vice Mayor Dawn Oliphant in a press release. “As our community grows, the mayor and council are committed to enhancing the quality of life our residents enjoy by providing opportunities for recreation. Our amazing trail system is a part of that plan.”

The groundbreaking took place on Thursday, Sept. 23.

Queen Creek’s park and trail system provides connectivity throughout town and with neighboring communities, including Town Center and San Tan Mountain Regional Park.

The trail segment from Hawes to Ellsworth will build upon the existing trail by widening the path and creating separation between the pedestrian trail and equestrian users.

The  Ellsworth-to-Crismon segment will have a new asphalt path for pedestrian users and a decomposed granite trail for equestrian users. The trail will include wayfinding signs and landscape features, and there will be enhanced pavement markings at the road crossings for increased safety.
