    Directions to Trailhead

    The Rio de Flag South Trail is a great option when you want some fresh air and exercise but you don’t want to have to stray too far from the city. This route is gentle and scenic, with ponds, trees, and often elk or deer to see. This is a good option for hikers, dog walkers, and joggers. While it can be too icy and snowy to enjoy in the wintertime, this is a solid pick any other season. Navigation is easy and this hike is kid and dog-friendly.

    Route Description for Rio de Flag South Trail

    Rio De Flag South Trail is a great pick for a hike or jog on days when you don’t want to have to go too far outside the city. It’s a nice break in nature that isn’t demanding physically or navigationally, so we recommend this route for families and beginners. Dogs are welcome on this trail and it doesn’t tend to be too busy.

    There is some road noise at the beginning of the hike, but it’ll fade away as you get further from the road. The hike also starts from a neighborhood, which users report begin a bit confusing, but as long as you park respectfully you don’t need to worry about leaving your car here.

    From the trailhead, cross underneath the highway and go right around the pond. The trail splits just to the left of the pond, so you’ll take a right to the midpoint of the east side of the point and then go straight onto the Arizona Trail. Stay on this route until it begins to loop around at the halfway point, then take Rio de Flag Trail West back to the pond. At the pond, go back under the highway to return to the trailhead.
