  • The Loop

    Loop LogoPima County is developing The Loop around metro Tucson with links to Marana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson. Pima County residents and visitors on foot, bikes, skates, and horses can enjoy the more than 100 miles of shared-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 completed, The Loop will total 131 miles and connect the Rillito River Park, Santa Cruz River Park, and Pantano River Park with Julian Wash and the Harrison Greenway.

    Monsoon safety on The Loop

    The Loop is first and foremost a flood control improvement along a regional watercourse. Due to this, The Loop is subject to an increased amount of water, sand and debris than typically seen across Pima County.

    • Users should exercise a heightened awareness of the path’s ever-changing condition during the monsoon season.
    • Be prepared that during a storm, many portions of The Loop may become impassable or unsafe to use.
    • Underpasses, diversion channels, at-grade crossings and low-lying areas may flood.
    • Never enter a flooded area!
    • Slow down. The path can be slick from water, sand and other debris carried by the storm.
    • If you are unsure if the path is suitable to ride or walk on, turn around.
    • Even if skies are blue, debris may still be present from recent storms.
    • Year-round, use common sense when on The Loop and remember that you are the best advocate of your personal safety!
