We took the tram to the 9th stop and got off. We walked a few miles along the path until we came to a large rock peak. It looked like the path went on but at that point we were finished. This was a great hike. The visitor center is easy to find and if you take the trolley there... More

If you happen to be like me and not thrilled on touring during high 90 to 100 degree temps, then you will want to go here. The covered tram takes you to 9 stops and back. We went to the end and on the way back got off at 8. There was only a few people and generally speaking we... More

Paved walking path as well as hiking trails. There is also a trolley with narration by the driver that takes you through one area of Sabino. We took a trolley ride. There are several stops where you can hop off and then back on. Nice mountain views and lots of cactus! Well maintained and good to spend a couple hours... More

My wife discovered this attraction by accident while looking on line. Totally beautiful hardly describes it. Would take the tour again tomorrow! Some slight negatives..... The tour of 45 minutes is too brief. The tour guide hardly explains what you are seeing until you are off again to something else. I's be willing to pay more for a slower tour... More

Take the tram up and listen to the naration provided by the driver. If physically able, walk the 3.8 miles out (with water) and enjoy nature up close. If physically unable ride the tram both ways. YOu can also go to the lower canyon. visit the gift shop and see the topo map of the mtn and get advise on... More

Great little climb to add to a cycle around Tucson. Very scenic and free from cars. Watch your speed on the descent as there are many hikers also using the trail and it's the rules.

Varying degrees of difficulty hiking or take the shuttle one way or round trip. Beautiful vistas, a photographers dream. Friday nite walks are also popular with locals as well. Bring flashlight, water ( any time of the year!) and a black light to discover creatures only seen at nite. Star gazers will appreciate the low light too

Soooo beautiful especially when the sun has just come over the mountains. Water is usually running in the streams all year long and if you can take the little tram from the base of the canyon all the way up to the top.. you can get off and back on anytime or hike it if you choose. Make sure to... More

We took the little train to the tram stop #9, end of the road and hiked back to the Visitors Center on Phonelinetrail. It was about 4.5 miles and I can not rave enough on how beautiful it was. Make sure to wear good shoes, bring lots of water and watch your steps. It is very rewarding.... so much better... More

We went in the morning when the weather was cool and clear. There weren't many if any kids around so the ride and tour were quiet. The only downside is that if you get off of the tram at one of the stops, you may not be able to get back on the next tram due to the large number... More
