Such a great and beautiful area with so much to do. Taking the tram can be fun and informative or just doing the trails yourself is a great time. The better the weather the better the time you will have. Friendly rangers and staff. Never had an issue here but it might not be for very young kids that don't... More

Beautiful any time of year but my favorite is when we've had some rain and the streams in the canyon are running full. We always take our out of town visitors and it never fails to impress. Who says we're only sandy desert...

This is a canyon with well-marked, well-mapped, and well-described trails. We hiked for for 4 days for 5 hours each day. Great weather!! We chose moderate to strenuous routes and loved it. The scenery was great. One thing special about this hiking is that the footing was very good due to dry conditions. I have frequently hiked in moist conditions... More

Even if you only have an hour, take the tram ride to view this exquisite canyon, narrated by knowledgeable Park Rangers. You can get on and off at 9 different stations to walk or view the geography. You can also go hiking if you have the time and desire. Put this on your list.

Sabino Canyon is a must visit if you're in the Tucson area. It's got trails ranging from 1/2 mile to over 8 miles, and a Tram for the less adventurous. Beautiful scenery with amazing views of the Tucson area and surrounding mountains. Especially pretty at dawn and dusk, though the sun sets fast so be sure not to get caught... More

This is a beautiful area for hiking or just taking a Sunday stroll (novice-intermediate trails). The vegetation and streams/small waterfalls make the area a truly scenic one.

A true gem in the desert Magnificent anytime of year The creek drains the southern face of the catalinas with its origin in Marshall gulch near summer haven. For a real adventure, go for multiday hike from the creek's origin at Marshall gulch through the wilderness of rocks then along Lemmon creek to finally emerge into sabino canyon. Loads of... More

Wow! I never knew the desert could be so beautiful! I have a new respect for the beauty and majesty of Saguaro Cactus. This Canyon has amazing scenery. Take the tram (really a bus and bring cash) to the top of the road and view the amazing rock formations and cliffs and road/bridge/dam construction. Get an all day pass and... More

My family and I were in Tucson for Christmas to visit my dad. We went to Sabino Canyon on the Tuesday after Christmas as the drive to the top of Mt. Lemmon on the Mt. Lemmon scenic highway was iffy due to snow and ice at the higher elevations. The parking at Sabino Canyon was very, very crowded. In fact,... More
