The Huckelberry Loop

Santa Cruz River Park
Grant Road: The west bank of the Santa Cruz between Grant Road and El Camino del Cerro will be closed October 19-20 for crews to do pavement repair. Loop users should use the east bank instead.

Sunset Road: Pima County’s Regional Wastewater Reclamation Division will be performing sewer work that will impact the Santa Cruz section of the Loop between Sunset and Diamond. The closure begins October 21 and will last through approximately December 1. This is the section of the Loop running next to the I-10 frontage road. Loop users can use the “Scenic Route” along the east bank of the Santa Cruz from Diamond to Sunset. This closure would be from the north side of Diamond to the south side of Sunset. Users will find signs alerting them of the detour. The path will remain open on weekends.

Rillito River Park
Pima County and its contractors will begin a repair August 17 on the earthen slope along the north bank of the Rillito River just west of the Country Club Road bridge that will require closing The Chuck Huckelberry Loop for about two months. Loop users will be detoured to the south bank between Mountain Avenue and Country Club for the duration of the project. Signage will warn users of the upcoming detour.

Other Notices

Please Note: Please remember that Pima County Code (Chapter 6.04.030) requires dogs to be leashed and under control and also requires pet waste to be immediately picked up and properly disposed of in a sanitary manner. This applies to public spaces such as parks, trails, The Loop, open space, nature resource areas, river beds and most every public space except “dog parks”.
