The Rillito River Park is part of The Loop pathways system. The trail itself is paved, well-maintained and well-marked once you are on the trail. The access point on the northern end was almost impossible to find. Even google couldn't get us there. We simply had to drive around as there were no signs. Some parking lots are not obvious...

The river path is welcome addition to us walkers, bikers, runners and if you own a horse, riders. It goes for miles along the dry Rillito River. There are parks along the path where one can find water and bathrooms but don't forget to bring your own water as there is little shade along most of the trail. In some... More

The Loop bike path beside the (totally dry) Rillito "River" is quite a wonderful feature of Tucson for visitors and residents. It is flat and paved, smooth and scenic (the mountains are in the distance along the north side of the path for its entire east/west length.) There are many access points along the foothills, and it's easy to park.... More

The River paths are well-maintained and well-marked. The access points and parking lots aren't quite as obvious as they could be, from the street, but once on the trail, there's no trouble knowing where to go. Bathrooms and drinking fountains are placed at reasonable intervals along the trail, which is of great help in the Tucson heat. From my experience,... More

So many good eateries in Tucson, you'll want to ride, walk, or jog off the extra calories. On our visit, the river was dry but the fresh air and mountain views were welcome. This path is paved, divided, well marked with maps, and has underpasses and bridges to get from one side to another. We entered the River-walk from St.... More

This is a great outdoor facility for biking or jogging or walking, for miles and miles. Just wish there could be a water fountain every few miles or so. I mean, there are a *few*, if you know where to get off the trail to go hunt them down, but...

We have used this trail several times with our bikes on this visit to Tucson-it is a very nicely maintained trail (asphalt), and there are many places to detour for lunch and shopping. Hope the people of Tucson realize how lucky they are to have such a facility, and thank you for sharing it with us visitors. It is nice... More

This is a great 12 mile walking trail along the "river" . You can access it from several major street and don't have to walk the entire route . It is also used by cyclists, runners and dog walkers. At times you will also encounter a horse rider.

This trail is about 12 miles long. We ran five miles on East end starting at Craycroft and going west. We stayed on the North side of the river. There are a few facilities, parks, restrooms and drinking fountains along the way but I would recommend carrying or stashing some water. This was during an unusual cold spell in January... More
