Always a great place but after a good rain--wow!

We use the paved bike/hike path very often. It is well-designed and you are always in full view of the mountains. Expect to see a variety of bird life and ground squirrels... read more

We use the paved bike/hike path very often. It is well-designed and you are always in full view of the mountains. Expect to see a variety of bird life and ground squirrels, lizards, and sometimes coyotes. In Spring, the trees and shrubs are in full bloom. While the river is mostly dry, rain in summer or winter will have you... More

Great pet friendly walking, running or biking path. Fine for little ones or those who have physical limitations as this is essentially a flat paved walk.

Read reviews about this area and decided to check it out. Not very impressive but okay place to walk. Don't be fooled, the "river park" has NO water in it. I like to take my Golden Retriever to walk where there is water for her to frolic in. This is not the place. Go to Tanque Verde Falls if that's... More

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.
