There is something for everyone here. Start at the visitor's centre for detailed and helpful information from the staff. The variety of hikes is significant. The vistas are incredible. The desert vegetation is beautiful. The opportunities to take great photos are significant. If you are outdoors oriented, this is a must see and do.

I hate to jump on the bandwagon of all the excellent reviews but it's ALL TRUE!!! We hiked here today for the first time & wished we hadn't spent so much time hiking in Saguaro National Park - Sabino is so much better!! Tram ride up to the top was beautiful & exciting to go over the bridges with the... More

When you find yourself in Tucson, AZ a MUST SEE attraction is the Sabino Canyon State Park. Talk about a fascinating and enthralling place for hikers of all ages and skill. For us 'oldies', we elected to take the guided tram ride the 4 mile trip to the top of the canyon with all intentions of walking/hiking back (we did,... More

Such a great and beautiful area with so much to do. Taking the tram can be fun and informative or just doing the trails yourself is a great time. The better the weather the better the time you will have. Friendly rangers and staff. Never had an issue here but it might not be for very young kids that don't... More

Beautiful any time of year but my favorite is when we've had some rain and the streams in the canyon are running full. We always take our out of town visitors and it never fails to impress. Who says we're only sandy desert...

This is a canyon with well-marked, well-mapped, and well-described trails. We hiked for for 4 days for 5 hours each day. Great weather!! We chose moderate to strenuous routes and loved it. The scenery was great. One thing special about this hiking is that the footing was very good due to dry conditions. I have frequently hiked in moist conditions... More

Even if you only have an hour, take the tram ride to view this exquisite canyon, narrated by knowledgeable Park Rangers. You can get on and off at 9 different stations to walk or view the geography. You can also go hiking if you have the time and desire. Put this on your list.

Sabino Canyon is a must visit if you're in the Tucson area. It's got trails ranging from 1/2 mile to over 8 miles, and a Tram for the less adventurous. Beautiful scenery with amazing views of the Tucson area and surrounding mountains. Especially pretty at dawn and dusk, though the sun sets fast so be sure not to get caught... More

This is a beautiful area for hiking or just taking a Sunday stroll (novice-intermediate trails). The vegetation and streams/small waterfalls make the area a truly scenic one.
