The park is great. It has walking, jogging, cycling, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, and the views of the mountains are wow. The park has drinking water, equestrian access, exercise stations, restrooms, river parks and walking paths. There is something for everyone. Make the time and go to this must see park, you will come back again! Bring water bottle (refill... More

Here you can walk the trails, watch a sporting event, watch the horseracing when it is going on or just enjoy the opportunity to see the beautiful Tucson area from a different perspective.

While we lived in Tucson, this was a favorite for our outdoor life here. It is ideal for running... stretching for many miles, with numerous bridges for shorter turn arounds. Water fountains, bathrooms, and parking. Great in the early morning, or the evening. It's Arizona... you should avoid mid- day. A special treat, during monsoon season the dry riverbed becomes...

If I lived in Tucson I would be using this park all the time! Twelve miles of trails to bike, jog, and walk. We brought our doggy Lulu and she enjoyed the multiple grassy parks along the way and at Brandi Fenton Park there are 3 dog parks for small, medium and large dogs! Some parks have restrooms and there... More

Walked 7 mornings in a row, before breakfast (with coffee to go from our hotel) along this beautifully maintained, riverside trail. We could go over two miles in either direction, with the early sun hitting the Santa Catalina peaks above, and dusty, palo verde filled river bed below. Very popular with dog walkers, runners and bikers, we were never alone... More

We come from MN, the land of 10,000 bike trails. We loved the bike trail at Rillito Park. Starting at Craycraft, we went 10 miles out and were amazed at how easy the ride was. We didn't realize that there was a slight grade that made the ride back more difficult..... Not hard, but certainly more strenuous. When we do... More

This is a well used biking/running/waking track. On the weekends and holidays this place can get VERY crowded.

I was looking for a flat location to run in Tucson, and this path was a great spot. There is a paved path along both sides of the river(which is really a dried out valley most of the time. There are benches, water fountains, etc along the path. Many access points - basically anywhere a road crosses over the river.... More

The Rillito River park multi use path has become very popular for walkers and cyclists. I have walked and biked the path many times. It's very frustrating when walkers have ear buds and a dog on a long lead. Perhaps some signage on good manners--like they have for bikes, would be helpful. All in all, the path is well maintained...

We were looking for something to do for about an hour in the morning. This trail is great for walking or biking...you can tailor the length to your timeframe.
