Sabino Canyon

One of the "must see" in Tucson. It is one of the ideal ways to introduce visitors to the flora and species which thrive in this environment : the Southern Arizona desert.

Sabino Canyon is my favorite place to take visitors in Tucson. The tram, which runs every half hour takes you deep into the canyon, explaining the plants and rocks as you go. The information is interesting, always given with humor, and the scenery is beautiful. It's always cooler in the canyon than it is in the rest of Tucson, which... More

Natural desert scenery that is kept natural. There is a paved road thide and then walkat is only open to tour vehicles, It is all uphill on the way out, so many opt to walk and then ride, or ride and then walk. A ticket allows one to get on and off and keep doing that on the same day.... More

This is a must see for all ages, we always take our company to the Canyon. It's a great way to see the desert, ride the tram, or walk though and stop along the way. The guides have so much to share with you on your ride through the canyon, telling you about everything that you see. The canyon is... More

We always love going there and seem to discover something we missed before. The tram to the top and a nice walk back are always fun. Sometimes we pack a lunch as there are many picnic areas. Nothing to dislike.

Sabino Canyon is a beautiful place with trails for hikers of all levels. You can also take a narrated tram to the end of the canyon and ride or hike back. We have seen deer, gila monsters, javelina, and other animals while hiking in the canyon. Be sure you get a trail map at the visitor center if you plan... More

This canyon was formed in the 1800's by an earth quake, forming a wonderful place to hike and enjoy beauty of the seasons. Water runs in the winter thru the spring, bring in many birds and other animals. Tram will take you to the top and then you may hike down, wonderful walk.

Beautiful canyon. So fun to take the little train/tram ride if you just want to relax, or enjoy hiking if you're up for more exercise. You don't realize the beauty that is tucked away in the mountains.

Take the tram to the top and walk down. Great scenery and, if you are lucky you might even see a Gila Monster.
