Go in April when it is cooler. Impressive cactus and scenery. We drove through ourselves or you can get a tour but driving yourself and stop along the drive.

If you have the time, hike a few miles to the Seven Falls. Its beautiful and offers a perfect place for a picnic and to cool our feet. The hike is very picturesque but not for the faint of heart. You need to be in good physical condition to make it to the falls. Its worth the workout!

For nearly 30 years as a Tucson resident I've hiked this miracle of nature at least once a month. It's the first place I take my family members or guests who come to visit. I've introduced all seven of our grandchildren to nature hiking there at an early age. The features of this miraculous slash down a Catalina mountainside are... More

This was an amazing time to go to the canyon. Everything was green and just beautiful. Jason one of the tram drivers was very courtesy and informative.

This is the road taken to get to Mount Lemon. The day I went it was 104 degrees on the desert floor and 68 degrees at the top. Nice restaurant on top.

A vigorous hike while chatting with friends or a lazy tram ride with commentary from the guide. You cannot go wrong Sabino Canyon is a Tucson treasure. Relax and enjoy!

If you want to see the desert and all it's beauty this is the place to go. You can take a short walk or a longer hike. If walking is not your thing you can still get the full experience with a narrated tram ride. That too offers a longer ride and a shorter ride. You can pack a lunch... More

We live in Tucson and walk here often. It is a absolutely beautiful place to walk or hike -- a wonderful example of the Sonoran Desert!

One of he reason's we moved to Tucson from California is because of the peaceful, serene beauty of cycling & hiking through the Sabino Canyon trails in the early morning and early evenings.There are many hiking trails, plenty of picnic facilities and restrooms. The road through the center is paved but there are many, well marked trails off to each... More

I have lived in Tucson for 16 years, fairly near Sabino Canyon. We always take visitors on the narrated tram ride in Sabino Canyon as a great introduction to the area. You can get off and on the tram and walk portions (or ride up and walk down as there is no narration on the ride down). Many movies were... More
