This paved path was perfect for our morning run. We parked near the soccer fields, and there were clean bathrooms available. There were quite a few people out running, walking, and biking. Everyone was very courteous, and exchanged several hello’s and good morning’s. :-)

We stayed in Tucson for a month and brought our dog. The river walk by Brandi Fenton Park was particularly wonderful. My husband also made full use of the river trail bike path. Great amenity.

The River Path that runs along the Rillito will ultimately circle the city. Currently you can run, walk or cycle nearly 100 miles on nicely paved paths.

I don't recall any signs barring motorized vehicles, but I did note a sign explaining that access was for bikes, inline skating, wheelchair access, horseback riding, and walking. There was no mention of anything motorized.

As we rode, I did not see any bike sharing or rental areas along the pathway. However, search online for a rental shop that may be close to the path. It's a biking city; I'm sure there is something close.
