Stay away from the South Mountain side in Laveen. Not only is there almost zero shade, the surface is broken pavement with a mixture of some light gravel. There are some sketchy neighborhood spots that you have to run behind. But most importantly, way too many streets to cross without any crosswalks. Every other block you have to cross a street. And you have to fight traffic (sometimes standing in the middle because you can only get across one part of the traffic at a time). This really isn’t a trail, but a access road for powerline workers to
The trail was beautiful through the forest and on the rims it was spectacular and majestic! I kept trying to soak up as much of this experience as I could. I just didn’t want it to end. The paved trails were such a pleasure to bike on.
This was so spectacular and worth it!! The majestic view from the rims was just breathtaking! Best bike ride I have ever done.
The Julian Wash Greenway is one of five sections of the 56-mile continuous multi-use path around Tucson. I have been walking the Loop in sections for almost two years. I should be done by year's end.
While the path itself is in good shape, the big flaw to this section is its many homeless people, especially on its western part nearing downtown. People live in the culverts, the overpasses, under thick shade trees in the washes. They don't bother me because I always walk with at least one dog by my side, but the trash they leave behind can get overwhelming.
This is also the industrialized part of Tucson. The eastern part goes south of the Davis-Monthan Air Force base, where new homes are being built along the interstate.
There is very little shade along this stretch. Water is available in the parks along the way, with flush toilets.
There are two blocks where the path is the actual street, east of the Los Ninos Park.
This is the least-used section of the Loop.
Nice Trail, nice nature around and you always meet kind people.
Well paved trail and some great scenery.Easy access from Horseshoe Park.
This path is awesome. It is asphalt, very smooth and well maintained. It can be busy at times and is a multipurpose trail where portions can’t be used for any motorized vehicles. So if you walk, road bike, mountain bike, or use a trike, it a great path!
Trail was amazing and beautiful scenery along the way. Parks, neighborhoods and wildlife along the path. Very busy on the weekend but we'll worth it!
Very steep rough trail. We could not ride with our city e bikes.
Nice path that is separate from traffic for most of the ride. It’s a smaller two lane path with a curb and reflective markers where it meets the road. There is a small portion of it that cuts through a residential neighborhood with speed bumps and no marked bike lane, but there’s not enough vehicle traffic to cause much issue. Once you hit Alma School or Dobson you’ll take a path along the canal to the other respective intersection. If you intend to continue riding to Riverview park, you’ll need to cross a six lane road with a crosswalk. A marked street bike lane will take you the rest of the way, albeit with no barriers
One) The Tusayan to Grand Canyon Village Greenway seems like a good idea, but the execution is lacking. I rode from the Village toward Tusayan after much difficulty actually locating the Greenway in the Village because the signage is non-existent. Once I stumbled upon the Greenway, I found the asphalt surface to be far from smooth. I was frustrated enough with the jarring ride that upon reaching the Grand Canyon south entrance station, I rode back to the village along the highway, State Route 64. Two) The Greenway within Grand Canyon Village is somewhat acceptable, but don't expect to have a leisurely, smooth and uninterrupted ride with the pavement cracks and starts and stops every time you intersect a roadway. With the low speed limit, I found it smoother, more comfortable, safe enough and just as easy to simply ride to the right along the roadways. Granted, I am comfortable riding in traffic and always use bright colored clothing with flashers on the front and rear of the bike.
This is a long trail. Start early to beat the heat because the Heat almost got us and that was returning 9:39 am It’s all paved but most of it is open hardly any trees to block the Sun.. So your exposed.. But being paved gentle on the bike and us.
