The River Path that runs along the Rillito will ultimately circle the city. Currently you can run, walk or cycle nearly 100 miles on nicely paved paths.

Beside the wash, this pathway, on both sides of the wash, was a superb place to walk. Great views of the mountains surrounding Tucson, nice wide pathway and lots of others out enjoying the day. It goes 12 miles, one way. There are quite a few places along it to park your car.

At this park (and at various other places along the trail) walkers and bikers can get on the Rilloto loop. We traveled almost 20 miles on this path. It was well maintained with few people mud-week on a February afternoon. We rode from Alvernon to where we could see I10 and back. While you see and hear the busy traffic... More

We walked on the path next to the group of parks that the path connects. The bikers were very curteous and the other walkers were very friendly. We enjoyed the chance to walk somewhere close to where we were staying.

Great place for walking or biking on paved loop paths. It's awesome when there is water running (which it was when we were there, as we had heavy rains). Pet friendly and the loop goes in several directions, so you have choices as to how long you want to walk or ride. My sister, grandson, and dog walked the short... 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.
