Guide to Julian Wash Greenway

Dedicated in February 2011, the Julian Wash Greenway is part of the Chuck Huckleberry Loop and runs approximately 16 miles from the Santa Cruz River east-southeast to Mesquite Elementary in Rita Ranch. 

Start here and you will be connected to "The Loop" (120+ miles of paved pathways all around Tucson).

Bring out your bike, your stroller, or your tennis shoes - and enjoy the desert sunshine. The multi-use project includes asphalt and granite trails, park nodes, and pedestrian crossings.

A trailhead parking lot with 15 spots is located at 7501 S. Kolb Road (one mile north of I-10). A restroom and drinking fountain are also on-site.

The Chuck Huckelberry Loop is a system of paved, shared-use paths and short segments of buffered bike lanes connecting the Rillito, Santa Cruz, and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison Road Greenways. 

The 120+ mile Loop extends through unincorporated Pima County, Marana, Oro Valley, Tucson, and South Tucson. The Loop connects parks, trailheads, bus and bike routes, workplaces, restaurants, schools, hotels and motels, shopping areas, and entertainment venues. Visitors and Pima County residents can enjoy the Loop on foot, bikes, skates, or horses.

Besides the Kolb parking there’s also 12 designated Loop parking spots at Augie Acuna Los Ninos Park (near Alvernon Way and Drexel Rd), 20+ parking spots at Thomas Jay Park (near Littletown Rd and Craycroft Rd), and 6 parking spots at S 12th Ave & W 40th St.
