A must visit whenever in Tucson. We rent in the NE corner of town just to be close to it. Like the variety of hiking available and the tram, too. That area is so beautiful!
We spent half a day at the canyon and had a wonderful time. We took the tram all the way to the top and then hiked a trail for about a mile. The views are great and our kids 10 and 12 loved the trek. We hopped on and off the tram on the way down. There are a couple... More
This is Tucson's "Central Park", within a very short distance from the City. With the tram ride, a person can get off and on again at any of the many beautiful areas. For those with energy, the 3.7 mile hike on a paved road to the top is a good work out. It can be a round trip in about... More

Take the tram to see the entire canyon, on the return trip get off at stop 1 and hike to the ridge trail, dam, and then to the visitor center. A great way to experience the Sonora Desert in a couple of hours.
Best docents in the area. If you want to really learn about the desert, go on a docent led hike. Best hike is the circuit through the canyon to the dam. Most life concentrated by the stream. Birds, butterflies and plants all unique.

The trails are available 24/7. Night hikes under he full moon are also very enjoyable. The canyon is very nice for bird watching and other wildlife viewing. There... More
I live in Tucson and walk here a lot. You can walk on the paved road and the hiking trail. Bring water with you. The shuttle starts at 9am, I usually try to walk before that so I do not have breath the exhaust.
