Great place for a quick walk, run or bike.

My husband and I went to this park for a 3 mile run. It was a paved path. Lots of walkers, runners, and bikers. We thought it was a very nice park.

It is such a plesure to be able to walk a mile or more within the city, and not have to worry or stop for traffic. The path goes under roadways. There are many different parks along the way. Often there are stetches of dirt and varied natural vegetation. Parking is usually not a problem at the many access points.

connects to the river trail which is great for walking, running or biking; trail has multiple different parks every 1-2 miles for kids and pets to enjoy; great for long bike rides without any worry about dealing with cars

I love the "Loop" to ride my bicycle in a safe and fun experience. I am able to get out, have exercise and return in one piece. You will see cars only in the parking lot.

My husband and I are slow mountain bikers and this is one of our favourite paths. Sure there are fast people on their road bikes but they pass on the left and are courteous. We love the views of the Catalinas and the fact that there is ample car parking and a clean washroom at the start.

As a family that enjoys cycling, finding 'the loop' was a score. We visited this many times primarily to be able to ride safely. It is a shared path and bicycle riders need to give way to everyone. This is fine. Most of the walking traffic are very considerate but there are some who are oblivious to anyone else and... More

Too many fast bicycles. Not like it used to be before bike path was widened. Didn't feel safe with children. Thought this was supposed to be a shared use trail. Haha. Definitely geared to bikers.

Ok, greenery and gladed suclusion are difficult to come by in Tucson, still this park offers none of that. At best there are a few trees and somewhere to park your car. If you want to walk or cycle along the Rillito this is a good place to start, but it feels like it has just been built. It is... More

The many entrances, exits, and bridges to cross over let you determine how long you'd like to bike, jog, or walk. Sometimes there's shade and sometimes not. People are polite and many groups of friends can be seen together. This is an ideal way to get be outside while burning a few calories.

The park was a nice surprise. Learned a lot from a knowledgable guide. The dry river bed is still interesting.
