Santa Cruz River Park Trail


  A paved trail follows the Santa Cuz River for over 40 miles and provides access to other trails.  Most of the year the river bed is a dry wash but abundant foliage along the trail makes for a pleasant and scenic walk.


   Make a quick stop at the Garden of Gethsemane, a group of sand and plaster statues created by Felix Lucero, a veteran of WWI, to fulfill a promise he made as he lay wounded on a battlefield in France.

  The trail is well maintained and flat except for the underpasses at major highways so it’s very accessible.

    We parked on North Riverside Drive where there’s plenty of on– street parking. There’s also a small parking lot that is not suitable for RVs. Trail   32.23418, -110.98615
