We were in Tucson for a month in March to escape our snow belt winter. We rented a condo that was a few minutes drive to Sabino Canyon. We went there most days. The park is a beautiful dessert park with miles of cacti. We...More
So many options - short stroll or strenuous hike. Definitely want ankle high boots if really trekking as thick desert flora ... also be vigilant that sun sets quickly w radical temp change! Beautiful area.
Even those unable to hike ,are enabled a view inside the canyons that make up such an important part of the desert landscape. The tram ride takes you all the way to the end of the paved segment of the Sabino trail. It also opens...More
Want to get lost in the beautiful and magical energy of the desert and its life, but always find your way back? If so, come to Sabino Canyon. This place has great educational resources and magical learning opportunities. Signs will guide you & teach you...More
Did two day hikes in this area...Seven Falls and Blackett's Ridge trails. It had recently rained so the falls and pools at the end of the Seven Falls trail were exceptional. Trail to get to the falls crossed a stream numerous times. Trail could have...More
Just a note that the shuttle buses up Sabino and Bear Canyons have not been running this fall, due to a transition from one shuttle service concession to a new one. It is not clear when they will start running again, though it is a...More

I hike in Sabino Canyon frequently, and quite safe going alone. I've spotted four snakes, plenty of deer and some cottontail rabbits. This is a beautiful, peaceful place to visit and I highly recommend it.
I've been there a couple of times, and the hike is amazing! I did the seven falls trail, there is a shuttle bus that takes you half way up, and then you continue on your own. At the end you can rest at the seven...More
Friends took us here for a hike, describing that there is a shuttle that will drop off/pick up. Unfortunately there was a sign on the ranger station that said”No shuttle, we did not apply for our permit on time”. Since we were not Millennials, and...More

Sabino Canyon is about a 20 minute drive from Saguaro National a monument East. October is a beautiful time to visit. Mount alemmon is about an hours drive from Tucson, if you want to go to the top, which you should consider. If you want to hike in each area, it would be hard to do in one day, but if you want to take the tram in Sabino, drive the loop in Saguaro East, and drive up to Mt Lemmon for a quick stay there, it’s possible but I’d recommend staying longer in each place to appreciate the beauty of each area. Two days would be great!
It's about 2 1/2 miles each way. We are 60 years old and had no trouble with it. Not a lot of elevation gain. You do have to cross the creek 7 times by walking on rocks. I think an agile 7 or 8 year old would be fine. Feet... More
It's about 2 1/2 miles each way. We are 60 years old and had no trouble with it. Not a lot of elevation gain. You do have to cross the creek 7 times by walking on rocks. I think an agile 7 or 8 year old would be fine. Feet might get wet, the creek isn't deep. We did see kids on the trail.
