A beautiful place!

We keep going back here. It's a gorgeous stop that highlights the Sonoran desert. $5 to park and $8 for a trolley tour. Don't miss it!

What an amazing park! There literally is something for everyone! I love that they offer the tram so EVERYONE, no matter what their physical condition you can view the canyon, experience the unique terrain and learn about the area through the narrated tour. NOTE: ARRIVE EARLY! The Visitor Center opened at 8:30, the tram tours began at 9:00am. I arrived... More

We had read about the tram ride into the canyon, so went one afternoon. It was a good way for me, the non-hiker, and my hiker husband to both enjoy it. It's a unique combination of elements not really found at other scenic areas - even I could figure that out, and it was stunning. My husband was able to... More

We visited in March, weather was nearing 90, we had a nice breeze all day. Use the tram at extra charge of $9 each, well worth ride to end of canyon. We took 1.5 hour trip past end of stop 9, this trip was mostly up grade, which made return a little easier, we hiked to stop 7, another 1.5... More

Amazing place to visit. The views are breathtaking. You can take the tram up and down the canyon and get off and walk as much as you would like. Do not forget the camera.

There are hiking trails for all levels of hiking here. The scenery is beautiful. The water in the canyon makes everything so lush. One of my favorite places in the desert.

We went here yesterday around 2-3 pm and it's so fun to experience riding the 45-minute Tram ride at Sabino Canyon trail. The views are breathtaking! Although we're not really on our hiking attire, we stopped by stop #8 and took a hike on the lake where we saw few people staying there along the way. We would definitely come... More

We found that two days will not be enough time to spend in Tucson and will have to return for a longer stretch next year! Since neither my hubs nor I are in great shape we opted for the tram ride up and walked half the way down. It's a beautiful place and needs more than a couple hours to... More

This really is one of the natural highlights of the Tucson area. We have taken visitors there. It is a busy place though, and you will need to pay to get in. Some good hiking trails too.

Hard hike for the kids, but what an amazing reward to play in the pools at the end. Be very prepared for a long hard day, but totally worth it.
