So close to town, very busy on a lovely Sun. after major rainfall. $5 entry fee. Lots of parking. Bridges closed because of rushing water but people still crossing with one women swept off & had to be rescued by helicopter. Easy walking on paved...More
We hiked from the visitor center, spending 3 hours in the canyon. We found no crowds and delightful views.
The visitor center has lots of parking and a great gift shop.
Exactly what we were looking for.
Took the scenic ride up this beautiful canyon. The commentary was great as well as the walk back down. You can get as much or as little exercise as you want. Arrive early if you want to park in the main parking lot.
We were in town for a business conference and had a free day. My husband and i took off and went to Sabino Canyon. We should have arrived earlier in the day, we got there around 9:30 and was already getting warm. Because we had...More
We’d taken a Monday morning out to visit the canyon during our Monday morning stay in Tucson. Unfortunately for us when we arrived on this typical 100 degree morning, the trams were not running that take you from place to place in between spots. Guess...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.
