It is really a great place for a long walk. The views are really nice. The tram rides are fun and informative. Although I didn't do too much of the off-pavement stuff, it looked like loads of fun (albeit with the potential to get by a snake!). The facilities and water access are reasonable--they have them fairly well-spaced out without... More

Start out here early on a sunny day as the hike can be long and hot. We took the shuttle to the farthest point and then started on our way, taking the telephone line trail. We had fun on this hike, though we felt a bit hurried as we had something scheduled for later in the afternoon. The scenery was... More

We took the tram ride to the top enjoying ALL the wonder of the vegetation and glorious mountains. We then hiked another mile up the mountain but could have gone further if we wanted to. We walked back down so we could get a better look at the AWESOMENESS of the area. There are trails everywhere and so much to... More

Visited here recently from Scotland and was overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the place! Fantastic ride up to the top and then my friend and I hiked down. Wonderful scenery.

Sabino Canyon is part of the Coronado National Forest and home to numerous hiking trails. Parking is $5.00 per vehicle. If you have a National Parks Annual Pass, parking is free. After visiting with a ranger we decided to take the tram up Sabino Canyon then hike the 5-mile Sabino Canyon Trail. You can walk the 3.7 miles to the... More

We visited the Sabino Canyon area recently and did two hikes--the Phone-line Trail in Sabino Canyon and the Seven Falls Trail in Bear Canyon. Each of the trails is very enjoyable, with magnificent views. The Seven Falls Trail winds through a riparian area and ends at a very pleasant waterfall and pool. The desert was in bloom and we saw...

Once upon a time we could drive all the way up to the end of the road. As more and more people arrived the trolley was introduced and the experience is now more controlled. The canyon is still beautiful and provides a starting point for several trails into the mountain. The canyon also provides an easy introduction to the mountains.... More
