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

This linear park is now part of the, not quite completed, Loop system. " The Loop is being developed around metropolitan Tucson with links to Marana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson. Pima County residents and visitors on foot, bikes, skates, and horses can enjoy the more than 110 miles of multi-use paths that have already been completed. If it doesn't... More

If you want a flat place to ride your bicycle or run that has no cars around this is it. It's a great flat stretch that has a few interesting sights. The coolest thing is to watch the underpasses right before sun down and thousands of bats will fly out. It's amazing to see all those bats.
