    On Tucson’s NW side at the base of the Catalina Mountains, Catalina State Park offers fairly flat road running and some fantastic trail options.

    Centrally located park with a lighted, 3-mile multi-use path and a popular 800 meter (half mile) dirt track.

    Following the banks of the mighty Rillito River (almost always dry), the Rillito River Path offers a 10-mile uninterrupted multi-use path.

  • Sabino Canyon

    One of Arizona’s most scenic running spots, Sabino Canyon offers both road and trail running options.
