Golf Links-Aviation Path

Cool place to take kids on a bike ride!

June, 2022 by rockiesvacations

The Rattlesnake Bridge is really cool and neat for kids. This area is easy access to 4th Avenue which is a mauve, cool bar and grungy student section. BikeArizona.org of The Arizona Bicycle Association ranks the Tucson Loop as the number one biking trail in the state of Arizona. Great place to take kids.

Julian Wash Greenway

Nice trail but bad surroundings

March, 2022 by plnelson28

The trail was very nice, but go with caution. Lots of homeless living along the trail.

Rillito River Park Trail

Do this one!

February, 2022 by acewickwire

Started from Tucson Mall (off of Oracle Road) and rode west on the southside of the river bed to the end of trail as shown in this trail description. However, the trail continues on many more miles as part of the Huckleberry loop. The trail is wide and smooth. With lots of trail users out and about. Good signage. We did the other end of the trail last time in Tucson and enjoyed that section also. Highly recommend this trail.

Dan Yersavich Memorial Bikeway

Yuck - Don’t bother with this trail.

February, 2022 by acewickwire

We started at National Park parking lot and rode down hill to just about the end of the trail. Trail surface is old and very rough with plenty of linear cracking. After mile 1.6 the surface improved for a distance. Several major street crossings are encounter with signals for when to cross. We turned around when the trail narrowed down to an elevated concrete path just a couple feet wide. The trail is adjacent to Old Spanish Trail road which is wide with bike lanes on both sides of it. The surface is smooth. We saw a number of road bike folks in the bike lanes, none on the trail. Think I would vote to remove this one from Trail Link’s list of trails. Plenty more in Tucson of much better quality.

Rillito River Park Trail

wow!

April, 2021 by j4hkydg8qm

Worth the drive from Phoenix to do this. Got off at Ina and left from the first parking lot. Went all the way to Craycroft where we thought the trail ended (it looks like it) don’t be fooled go up, cross over and it keeps going and going. We went 20+ and turned around. Delightful! Enough bathrooms. Options for lunch if you go off path and go to a main road. Seating areas in the shade for a break. Lots of cyclists on a weekday hot morning.

Rillito River Park Trail

Love this path!

February, 2021 by krissie3331

I have logged literally 1000s of miles on this path both day and night, from Craycroft to Marana and have always felt safe. Gorgeous views and friendly people.

Pantano River Park Trail

A few difficult spots for beginner roller blader

December, 2020 by misty17

I skated from the parking lot at E 22nd to Michael Perry Park & back. On the way there, there were two spots with hills but I was able to manage them ok as a beginner skater, although it did feel a bit fast on the downhill. On the way back, I did the first downhill slope & it felt too fast for me & I felt off-balance a few times. When I got to the 2nd downhill, I chose to take the side path onto the sidewalk along the street & ended up taking that all the way back because there wasn't a great spot to cross back over. I would consider myself a beginner but did used to roller blade a lot indoors around 28 years ago, so not completely new to roller blading.

The trail is nice & it was fun to skate while my kids rode their bikes, then have that break at the park before returning.

Santa Cruz River Park Trail

Killing stress

April, 2020 by graciepg7

Definitely love it.. The only negative i see is that a soon gets dark under the bridge homeless sleeps there make it unsafe. Almost tripped with one. But the ride is awesome.

Rillito River Park Trail

Unsafe!

March, 2020 by nikoherringsf

From La Cholla to the interstate you will find, nearly every day, people sleeping or evidence of them living on or nearby the path, specifically the bridges. I found and documented over 2 dozen tents in the river itself in this stretch. Mostly harmless people I'm sure but its enough to feel defensive and threatened.

Santa Cruz River Park Trail

Unsafe!

March, 2020 by nikoherringsf

Most of the path is beautiful! Riding alone is great except that almost every bridge and intersection you will not be alone. You will find people sleeping on or near the path, evidence of people living on or near the path, and gratuitous litter in these hot spots. Obviously it is mostly safe but for many miles it does not feel or look safe

Julian Wash Greenway

Just one part of The Loop. Great ride!

March, 2020 by sreimer4687

This trail is part of The Loop, the multi-use trail that has been built around Tucson. We were vacationing in the area and, along with riding the trail as part of the larger loop, we also used it as a great ride into downtown Tucson for lunch. It was nicely paved, not hilly, and there was art staged at various places along the way. There isn't much shade, but that was not a concern in February/March. Some of the signage was difficult to decipher, but we had a printed trail map, and that helped us to navigate the way.

Cañada del Oro River Park Trail

worth the trip from Phoenix

July, 2019 by eileencigala

This trail brings us down from Phoenix for a ride! It is a great workout and so beautiful! Can’t help but be happy on this trail.
