Firebird Raceway

Groom Creek Schoolhouse Trail


Its not too often you visit a 100-year old schoolhouse and find a wheelchair-accessible trail out back. And I’m not talking about your garden variety semi-accessible trail either. This may be one of the best short trails in Arizona.

Tempe Lake Marina


If you live in the Phoenix metropolitan area, you likely know how nice it is to visit Tempe Beach Park. But too few know about the marina and the north shore of the lake. It’s beautiful, rarely crowded and it’s really wheelchair accessible.

Woodland Lake has a great trail that takes you all the way around the scenic lake.

If you think a trail around a beautiful lake is all leisure, think again. This lake has a trail that’s challenging and even a bit nerve-racking. One slip and it’s a banzai run down to the lake.
