Nice park surrounded by paved trails on the Rillito walking/bike path. The park is interesting but nothing that is a can't miss.

This blacktopped path will eventually go the full distance around Tucson. It is bicycle and pedestrian friendly, mainly flat so suitable to any level of energy. We travel our favorite sections all year long till it gets too hot in Juny, July and August.

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.
