Trike ride on Santa Rita wash bike trail part 1
We found out about this stretch of trail in Oro Valley by studying the "loop" map. The "loop" is the bike trail that makes a circle around Tucson.
This is a place that is best to visit in winter.
It makes a nice day to drive up and take a hike, and then have a picnic there along the trail.
The western facade of the Santa Catalina Mountains is a very esthetically beautiful thing to behold. On the Canada Del Oro, you can see Pusch Ridge better than on the Santa Rita Wash, but you can see the Tucson mountains better from the Santa Rita wash stretch of of the loop.
The pavement seems very well maintained, smooth and nice to ride on. It's part of the loop, the trail around Tucson that is more than 100 miles of trail. I believe there are plans to extend the trail to make it longer and connect up with all the sections of the loop trail.
The northern stretch of the loop has more slope than this section of the loop. This section of the loop is nearly flat for more than 10 miles, making it a very pleasant ride.
