Default Walking trails in Tucson

Does Tucson have anything like the paved bike/walking jogging trails that many cities have now. I don't mean the dirt trails in the mountains or the bike paths in the city streets, just some nice flat trails to get out on. I was just wondering if there is anything like greenbelts, or those rail to trails projects cropping up in much of the country. Sadly though I think most of these type trails are in the northern climates. Seems like an awful lot of life in the sunbelt states, not just Tucson revolves around home to car and car to store or work and that is it. Thats not my idea of living in a warmer dryer climate.

Hi Jim,

The Rillito River Path is a lot of fun to walk/run/bike and it also has numerous bathrooms and water fountains along the way.

And should it rain, he might even see some water in the river!

Thanks both of you, that makes me happy. I am researching the area to retire to, and its very important to me to have access to that type of area. Coming from Portland with so many bike and jogging paths, I would be unhappy without such places to go to. Thanks again.

This is good to know as I'm looking for this, too. I love to jog/run, too & am looking for places, trails besides just the mountains to do it in.

Is this even a possibility in the hot, brutal summer heat of Tucson??

Hi Jim,
The following are nice trails to ride a bicycle in Tucson. Rillito River Parkway (as mentioned), Pantano Parkway (Eastside of Town), there is a trail that goes to Saguaro Natl' monument East that is Off the side of the road but paved for bicycles. Also a short nice trail from Upper to Lower Lincoln Park on the East side of town. Good Luck & Happy Retirement
