Enjoy an Afternoon Outside on These Trails Around Gilbert

Whether you're just starting a running routine or have hit the pavement for years, you will find several trails around Gilbert that are perfect for a fun, scenic workout. The best running trails around our Gilbert apartments include:

Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt

Spanning 11 miles, the Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt is perfect for long-distance off-road runners. It meanders past lakes, parks, and golf courses, offering beautiful scenery along the way. The trail is mainly flat and offers several access points, allowing you to make your run as long or short as you would like. Evening runners find most of the path is lit at night.

Hieroglyphic Trail

Climbing a gentle slope, the Hieroglyphic Trail is a 1.5-mile path perfect for beginners. It ends at a rocky section featuring pools once important to the ancient Hohokam Indians. They etched polygraphs on the dark weathered surface above the pools. This location is high enough to offer panoramic views of the Superstition Mountains to the north, and Gold Canyon to the southwest.

South Mountain Park/Preserve

At over 16,000 square feet, the South Mountain Park/Preserve is one of the country's largest municipally managed parks. It boasts miles of trails and also offers Silent Sunday on the fourth Sunday of every month. That's when the park's main roadway is closed to vehicle traffic between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., to allow the park's visitors to enjoy non-motorized activities like running, hiking, and cycling. After your run, enjoy spectacular views of the Valley from atop Dobbins Lookout.

Whether you enjoy running or walking, we hope you enjoy these trails around Gilbert. For another way to stay active, enjoy kickboxing classes at a nearby gym. They will keep you moving unlike ever before. Finally, to call Town Commons home, please contact us.
