The Golf Links-Aviation Path begins in downtown Tucson and runs southeast, following busy Barraza-Aviation Parkway (State Route 210) and later Golf Links Road—hence the trail's name. Road noise can be a nuisance on the trail's western half, but several bridges and tunnels make the route a non-motorized commuter's dream. Of particular note is the Diamondback (or Rattlesnake) Bridge over E. Broadway Boulevard, whose entire structure is designed to look like a snake.
Aviation buffs will also appreciate the path, as planes from Davis–Monthan Air Force Base regularly fly overhead. A portion of the base's famous boneyard, the sprawling final resting place of all out-of-service aircraft from the United States government, is also located immediately adjacent to the trail's eastern end.
Cyclists and those in wheelchairs should note that the trail's western endpoint at 9th Street can only be reached via stairs. An accessible entrance and exit can be found just a short distance to the east on 10th Street.
Parking for the Golf Links-Aviation Path can be found at Freedom Park (5000 E. 29th Street). From the park, take the spur trail less than 0.5 mile south to reach the main trail.
