Sabino Canyon has many trails of various lengths and difficulty. One recommended is to Seven Falls. It is 4.3 miles one way, and 650ft elevation change. Plenty of parking at the park entrance, with rest rooms and a visitor center.

A tram ride up the Canyon with a walk out is great, especially when the creek is flowing well. The neighboring canyon containing the 7 falls is a favorite spot for hikers. Get to the park early, beat the crowds and bring plenty of water...More

Hiked pretty much every trail in Sabino Canyon either by myself or with my daughter on my back. The canyon itself is beautiful and most of the trails are easy enough to do without poles. Definitely bring lots of water because there isn’t much shade...More
