Western Canal Path

Continuing from AZ Mills

February, 2018 by misterwalkotto

Same as a previous comment, my daughter and I got to AZ Mills heading west and it just ends at the parking lot. A map would be awesome so we could hook up to the other side. Also the crossings over Guadelupe and Baseline in particular are a bit hair raising.

Cañada del Oro River Park Trail

Canada Gold

January, 2018 by renebq91702

I would agree with the other reviewers. This is a lovely ride along the river. I started in the south just off the fwy. The trip up was head and cross winds. The weather started cool and cloudy but eventually cleared. There are many entrances to the trail. Some obvious and some not so obvious. I was not alone on this trail it is quite popular. There are a couple nice clean restrooms along the trail especially in Oro Valley Marketplace across from the Walmart. You’ll need to cross the street to get to it. Also, a couple nice pavilions along the way to rest or have a bite to eat.

Rillito River Park Trail

New bridge is open!

December, 2017 by trikesterhal

On the south side of the Rillito the new overpass (It's steep with a sharp turn at the top!) is open over N El Camino de La Tierra. It's been open for more than a month now. The trailhead on the west side of the street (restrooms, hand washing facilities) has been repaved as well. CAREFUL==> As you pull back onto the trail be extra careful. It's a T intersection and cyclists maybe coming down the steep bridge going fast, and from the west cyclists may me building up speed to climb the steep overpass. Be extra careful and watch for traffic!

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

LONGER PAVED PATH

October, 2017 by echavez19

The paved area starts at Broadway Road and goes all the way to Pecos and Lindsey a couple of blocks south Zanjero park about 11 miles

Consolidated Canal Path

I'll Be Back...

June, 2017 by blackapps.44

Decided to try this trail instead of driving to the hills and I'll definitely be back. It was hot, few people on the path and the short section I followed was easy to navigate across various intersections. Best of all, one of the parks on Ocotillo had decent restrooms (and I'll remember to park there next time).

Eastern Canal Path

2nd use of this path

May, 2017 by tompalmerappr

Had already done S part of path, so started at Elliot and rode N to Broadway and back.

Parked at elementary school at Elliott & Greenfield, rode wide sidewalk E to path. Nice asphalt path, fair amount of walkers/joggers/cyclists on weekend, older asphalt Southern to Broadway, then gravel so turned around.

Nice and scenic, easy road crossings, goes under the 60, will ride this path again.

Eastern Canal Path

Closed?

March, 2017 by stephens_doug15

The South end of this path seems to be closed. We tried to ride it this morning (3/15/17) and could not access it from the south. It's gated and locked.

Eastern Canal Path

It appears the hard paved part starts on the S end of the path just S of Pecos, so we got on the path at Pecos and rode N to Guadalupe then back.

We parked in a small shopping center parking lot on the NE corner of Lindsay & Pecos, which was right next to the path.

The path is asphalt on the W side of the canal the whole way, and in addition there is a very nice concrete path on the E side of the canal from Warner to Guadalupe.

There is a signalized crossing at Elliott, the other major street crossing all have room in the median to cross half of the street at a time.

There were a fair number of other cyclists on a sunny Saturday. We will ride this path again, and also try farther N.

Highline Lateral Canal Path

Ugly ride

January, 2017 by summersgill

The southern end, near the Walmart is nice, but crossing I-10 is treacherous and only for an ugly, poorly maintained trail. Turn around when the trail stops.

Cañada del Oro River Park Trail

Awesome views of the mountains, wide open spaces

January, 2017 by trikesterhal

I was in town to ride in the 34th El Tour de Tucson, November of 2016. From the Candlewood Suites on River Road I connected to the Loop on the Rillito River Trail (from the parking lot!). I crossed to the south side of the Rillito at Camino de la Tierra (fast traffic, dump trucks, rough pavement...be careful!). On the Rillito I connected to the Santa Cruz Trail and rode north catching the CDO Trail just north of Orange Grove Road.

The trail heads NE and is generally a gentle uphill grade all the way to where I turned around at N Oracle Road. It wasn't exhausting, just constant pedaling. On a recumbent trike I wasn't going more than 6 or 7 mph, but that's what I like about the trike. I could focus on the vistas and just enjoy the ambiance of the ride especially the views of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

On the return I was now going downhill most of the way. I shifted into the big ring and cruised along at about 15 mph enjoying the self-made breeze. It was a Friday and traffic on the trail was light.

According to Strava I rode 28.6 miles at an average of 7.7 mph (max of 22 mph) climbing a total of 501 feet. The nice thing was expending the most energy on the climb and then enjoying the ease of the return trip. This trail is a fun ride.

Santa Cruz River Park Trail

Enjoyable ride (long review, nostalgia included)

January, 2017 by trikesterhal

Arrived in Tucson two weeks before the 34th El Tour de Tucson (early November 2016). I stayed at the Candlewood Suites on River Road. The parking lot adjoins the Rillito River Trail which is part of the Loop system. I used to ride my bicycle where the hotel now sits.

My trip was particularly nostalgic because I grew up within a mile of the hotel in the late 50s and early 60s. I was enjoying riding as well as being on home turf. It's changed a bit, indeed, but it was home to me. I hadn't had a serious visit in nearly thirty years.

The morning I rode the Santa Cruz Trail was cool, sunny and clear warming into the low 80s F. I rode NW via the Rillito, crossing over to the south side at N Camino de la Tierra (public street, fast traffic, dump trucks, rough pavement). Coming back up onto the trail there are restrooms and water. Continuing on NW I crossed under I-10 and connected with the Santa Cruz Trail heading back SE. The trail is paved and you will parallel I-10, passing businesses (trucking, sand/gravel, construction) until you reach Camino del Cerro where you cross (you hop into the median to cross, watch the traffic) and now parallel the river (east side). The views down into the river are majestic.

Side note: I find that people either love the desert or hate it. Maybe it's because I grew up here that sand runs in my veins and cacti permeate my dreams, but I love the Sonoran Desert. Seeing the giant Saguaro and other cacti, lizards, Gambel Quail, the Santa Catalina Mountains... Sigh..... Hey, I'm retired now and I'm moving here in time to catch the spring flowers. I don't mind the summer heat and I tell people that the frogs wear headbands and carry canteens. Some get it and some don't. 8-]

Back to the trail now. I continued on south along the river passing an impressive solar farm and a water treatment plant (didn't have to hold my nose). I passed under Grant Road, Speedway and St. Mary's all the way to Congress where I would have to cross Congress itself (near downtown) if I continued SE. At that point I crossed, in a bike lane, to the west side of the river and headed back NW.

The ride back north took me along the river in places and through some picturesque open spaces until I crossed again at Camino del Cerro. From there I backtracked to the hotel. It was a an enjoyable ride covering 26.5 miles at an average of 7.8 mph on my Catrike 559, according to Strava. When I return I'll be riding a Catrike Dumont. I'm counting the days.

There were no challenging climbs and the views were spacious. I enjoyed the ride and traffic on the trail was light since it was Monday. I recommend this trail for the views and the wide open spaces. In another several days I would be riding 37 miles in El Tour de Tucson. That's another story.

Consolidated Canal Path

Rode the path N from Germann Rd to Ray Rd. Good parking at a vacant building SE corner of Germann & Airport Blvd, it's right next to the bike path and other cyclists and walkers park there, busy intersection so lots of visibility for your car. Path was quiet and somewhat busy on a weekend day. Concrete path on the E side of the canal, and asphalt path on the W side. Road crossings are signalized. Public restrooms at park on N side of Chandler Rd. We will ride this path again.
