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...

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
