Construction on a paved, multi-use path that will connect the Rancho Sahuarita community to Desert Diamond Casino could start within the next 12 months. 

The designated area, set back from the roadway, would be designated for bicyclists, pedestrians, skaters, wheelchair users, joggers and others. 

Hiking trails

While there are several multi-use paths throughout Green Valley and Sahuarita, there are also several hiking trails around the area for those that prefer to be out in nature a bit more off the beaten path. 

The Outward Collective compiled this database of the top hiking spots near Green Valley.

Where is your favorite place to hike in the area?

Free money. No, really.

I met recently with BAJA, the people who have run the winter softball leagues. They're a lot more than that. For the first time, they're looking at granting money to youth sports organizations. Here's the story link, and included is the grant form. Know a group? Here's where to send them:
