I was amazed that this desert location had pools and small waterfalls, and even a small beach! It was a beautiful canyon the tram was easy to catch, $9 each person for the day. Hop on and off, and walk as much or as little as you like! This was monsoon season, so we heard the water was more than... More

Jason made the trolley ride up the canyon both entertaining and informative. The views were great. My husband and I then had a very nice walk back down the canyon. Being monsoon season, there were streams and pools of water with small waterfalls under small narrow bridges the trolley uses. Well worth the time.

Terrific views, nice trolly ride into the canyon, informative driver, and a very pleasant day. If you have questions about the area the employees are happy to address them for you. Be sure to take a camera because the photo-ops are almost endless. Also, take a big bottle of water because you will need to stay hydrated, it's bone dry... More

I am somewhat hesitant to recommend going to Sabino Canyon because it is already so popular. Anyone can enjoy the canyon. There is a tram for people who are in a hurry or who prefer riding to hiking. For everyone else, there are a variety of trails ranging from relatively easy to very challenging. Bring your own water.

Take that trolley up the canyon - a great trip for travelers of all ages. Stop on the way to paddle in the river, or picnic by the falls or on a beach, or to explore those pools and rocks. Because of it's year-round water, the canyon is always a magnet for wildlife. For hikers, it's a gateway to the... More

I never tire of visiting Sabino Canyon every time we have out of town guests who are only here for a few days. It's very close to town so makes a quick couple of hours for an overview of the Sonoran Desert plants and wildlife, with beautiful scenery to be enjoyed on their tram ride for those unable to hike....
