Tucson’s “The Loop”

| February 21, 2012

The Loop is one of the best outdoor experience treasures of Tucson, a   multi-use cycling/pedestrian system that, when complete, will encircle Tucson with 55 miles of paved trails – no motors allowed. A great deal of The Loop follows alongside the Pantano, Rillito, and Santa Cruz river washes, making sections ideal for bird watching as well as for safe outdoor exercise.

About 38 percent of Tucson’s metro population live within a mile of The Loop, which has connectors planned for Oro Valley – following Cañada Del Oro – and south to San Xavier. The Loop connects with numerous parks and, a bonus for me, coffee shops along the way. The Farmer’s Market at  Phillip’s Plaza is right on the pathway for a weekend destination, and the new Mercado de Tucson is only a couple of blocks away on the west side.
