Me and my boyfriend had a good run!

Me and my boyfriend ran a little on the trail. I was a great workout. Just make sure to bring water. October is the best month to start running.

Great place usually, but there have been attacks on women there during the Summer of 2015. I would not go alone at this time.

I try to get down there around 5:30 A.M and have the place to myself... Later on the bikers appear and take some of the fun out of it as they go zipping by but they are usually a courteous lot..The path is wide and if you are lucky you'll catch a glimpse of coyotes as they run the dry... More

The Rillito River Trail is a busy multi-path trail used by a diverse group of people. It’s open to cyclists, joggers, walkers, families with strollers, dog walkers and even equestrians (on the southern part). But your experience and how you feel about it depends on the time of day and season you do this. There are many opportunities here for... More

Each year Tucson does a bit more work on the loop trail and there are many miles to cycle now and you can almost go around the entire city on bicycle paths. You can get the most current map at www.bikeped.pima.gov, including one that you can download to your smart phone. You can decide on different areas to cycle and... More

Some days you just need a flat trail that is easily accessible. This is not easy to locate in Tucson. We've got plenty of hikes and trails and not many that are flat and have a number of restrooms along the way. This Park and the entire river park trail is perfect for hikers, bikers and dog walkers (on a... More

This popular 12-mile trail runs from N. Craycroft Road to I-10, where it links with the Santa Cruz River Park Trail. It follows the usually dry Rillito River along a paved, mostly level route and is open to runners, walkers, cyclists, skateboarders and those with dogs. Therein lies the problem. Its popularity brings out hordes of people in all those... More

My wife and I have tackled it in sections and used the opportunity to explore neighborhoods and restaurants. So far we have found some real gems and really enjoyed the opportunity to see sections of the city that one will never see by car.

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...
