About The Loop
The Loop is being developed around metropolitanTucson with links toMarana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson. Pima County residents and visitors on foot,bikes, skates, and horses can enjoy the more than 110 miles of multi-use paths that have already been completed. If it doesn't have a motor, it's good to go on The Loop.
Work is ongoing to add more miles of paths. When complete, The Loop will connect the
Rillito River Park, Santa Cruz River Park, and Pantano River Park with Julian Wash and the Harrison Greenway.
