This is so beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There's trails to walk on as well as a tram to take you to the canyon. I will be visiting again.

After spending two days in a conference room full of physicists, I needed to clear the stale air and weight of science out of my head. Sabino Canyon definitely did the trick. I was there in July, which I did not know was monsoon season....More

A great place to spend the day. Various walking trails and lots of wildlife to see. Accommodates both beginners or expert hikers. Beautiful views.

Too hot to hike at noon, so I took the tram. Beautiful creeks, pools and bridges. Recommend a return in early morning or end of day or fall.

So, I've been visiting Tucson for over 25 years, anywhere from once to 4 times per year. Sabino is part of EVERY visit, at least once. My fave is the 7 Falls trail, about 4 miles each way, so start early and expect a HIKE!...More

We take all of our visitors here because you can't beat the views, the hikes, etc. I wish they took the $10 tram fees and buy new non-diesel, non-stinky trams.

Took the tram tour through the canyon. Very informative and beautiful scenery. A lovely tour that you can hope on and off the tram to explore the area. Can do the hour tour or make it a full day.

Words cannot describe how gorgeous this place is. We took the tram up to the top and our driver/tour guide (Jason) was great. There were nine stops along the way if you wanted to exit the tram and explore. We stopped at the top and...More
