The Rillito River Park Trail runs along both sides of its namesake river, from N. Craycroft Road to under Interstate 10, where it links with the Santa Cruz River Park Trail. The trail is fully paved, with a parallel soft-surface path for equestrians and joggers also available for much of the route.
Lots of shops are conveniently located on either side for quick pull-offs. You'll also find plenty of restrooms and drinking fountains, as well as exercise stations along the trail. From the western endpoint, seamlessly continue on the Santa Cruz River Park Trail to reach points both south and north. Both trails are also part of a larger trail network called The Loop that will one day encompass 130 miles of trail throughout Tucson.
You can park near the trail in several places along its route. There is a small parking lot on the eastern terminus just west of N. Craycroft Road. Other parking areas can be found just west of Swan Road, at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park (off Alvernon Way), off Campbell Avenue just south of the river, by Children's Memorial Park just south of Edgewater Drive, at the end of River Fringe Drive, at the end of Shannon Road (south of the river) and off Camino de la Terra just south of River Road.
