What is The Loop?
The Loop, also known as the Chuck Huckelberry Loop, is a 130-mile paved, mixed-use path along the banks of Tucson’s usually dry riverbeds. It runs along the Santa Cruz River, Rillito River, Pantano Wash, and Julian Wash riverbeds. The last section that made it an actual loop was completed in 2018, although more expansion work is planned in the future. THE LOOP MAP
The lack of cars on the paved path and the location of so many parks along the route, make this such a popular recreation destination for bicyclists, walkers, and runners alike.

Tucson is a great place to walk and bike
Tucsonans love to enjoy the outdoors on foot and on a bicycle. And for good reason since our climate is made for it with sunny days, cool mornings, and mild temperatures all winter long. Our topography ensures that there’s something for every level of walker and bicyclist with flat trails (like most of The Loop) available in the valley, and the opportunity for more rigorous mountain trails in the surrounding foothills and mountains.
The Loop Connects Several Parks
The Loop runs adjacent to many parks. Each of these parks offer a nice place to rest or have a picnic along the route. Didn’t plan a picnic? No problem, there are lots of restaurants to visit along the way too.
The Rillito River leg has the Rillito River Park, George Mehl Foothills Park, Brandi Fenton Memorial Park, Rio Vista Natural Resources Park, and Curtis Park.
The Santa Cruz River portion of The Loop has Crossroads at Silverbell District Park, Christoper Columbus Park, Juhan Park, and Santa Cruz Park.
The Pantano Wash section has Fort Lowell Park, Udall Park, and Michael Perry Park.
Did you know The Loop also features over 4 dozen works of public art?
