  • I use pathway for walking.Wish dog owners would pick up dog crap religiously, but some just don't care. Like the wide paved path and you can switch to desert trails at certain points. Very natural veg...  more »
  • Wide, flat and well maintained multi use trails, part of the Tucson Loop. Don't expect much beautiful landscaping, at least in the winter it seemed pretty stark.  more »
  • This paved path was perfect for our morning run. We parked near the soccer fields, and there were clean bathrooms available. There were quite a few people out running, walking, and biking. Everyone wa...  more »

  • I absolutely love the Rillito River Park. I mainly use the path from Craycroft to Oracle and then back again. I'm a mountain biker and I like to take advantage of the path and the off road trails that are strewn throughout. Every day is a blessed day at the park, but I am particularly fond of Sunday's because of the farmers market at the race track. Friendly people all around and other bicyclists are willing to lend a helping hand if needed. I could go on and on...just experience the park for yourself. Take care and safe travels...Robby D!
  • Close in and accessible. Walk, run, or bike away from most roads. Well-maintained paved paths.The only downside is that you can always hear the background rumble of traffic. But it has some great views of the Catalina Mountains.
  • This trail is perfect. It's paved and well maintained, there are benches along the way to stop and take a break. The people who use the trail, both bicyclists and pedestrians, are very respectable and cautious of others on the trail.
  • If you are looking for a place to park your car or tie up you horse while you walk the Rillito wash then you found it. This "park" doesn't have a swing set or a playground for children but it does have a few picnic tables (one covered) and a watering trough for your horse. The view of the mountains from this location is great. Come to this park just before sunset to view the colors on the mountains.
  • This is a great scenic trail that has spectacular views of the Catalina's as well as many specie's of the wildlife that in compass the region. The trail or park,if you will. Accommodates cyclists, joggers as well as pedestrians.Many people visit this park to take their dog's for a walk,as it is renowned for this. There are accomidations along the way for both the visitors and their dog's. Everyone does a terrific job at maintaining the cleanliness of the park. There's so much to see and take in that one can really get a good sense of and for the Sonaran Dessert here. There are equestrian trails that encompass this 12 mile long park as well. The Park/Trail has been well thought out so there's something for everyone here. I would recommend visiting this park and even picnicking.
