Good walking path along the Rillito River within the city. The path goes over washes and under streets, so it is not near vehicle traffic. Go as far as you want. Usually pretty... read more

Nice walking trails and bike paths. Too bad the river is dry. But the area was nicely tended, and clean, no hoboes sleeping in the bushes.

131 miles to bike ride on multi-use paths around the city of Tucson and toward Marana; all great fun! You will see walkers, joggers, roller-bladders, horse back riders, and people enjoying the day and area with binoculars, sketch book or camera. Great place to relax and catch the sight of a coyote running through the river wash, roadrunner flitting across... More

Today I took my friends mountain bike for a ride on the RRPT. The RRPT is on both sides of the river just north of Tucson city limits at the base of the Catalina Foothills. The trail runs from the east at Craycroft Ave. and proceeds slightly northwest to I-10. During the past 12 years I have walked every portion... More

Wonderful speed and sights, people are friendly and courteous on the trail and pedestrians have the right of way. I would love to see this after a rain. They actually have a full service bicycle shop where you can change tires and pump them up, repair items, tighten bolts and oil the chain all for free! It was the best... More

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
