Went hiking in the morning before it got too hot. The thin air and steep ascend definitely make the hike tiring even for an in-shape person. It's a great view when you get to the top though. The trails are obvious, very worn, but they're...More
I have lived in Tucson since the early 1990’s. I take anyone who visits to Sabino Canyon. The latest was my best friend from high school. She loved it. It’s beautiful, educational and a good ‘taste’ of Arizona!
We went on July 22. There was no tram service, which derailed our plans to go high up into the canyon and stop at swimming holes along the way. It was hot (high of 105 that day, and already in the mid-90s when we started...More

Took my 1st hike in this park. It has many trails with varying degrees of difficulties. Though the shuttle service is not in service, still nice to get around walking. Vistors center is nice and staff very helpful.

Sabino Canyon is very beautiful. The tram goes to the top and you’re able to get off at any one of several stops to view the scenery and hike. Driver highlight special points of interest during the tram ride. Great place to visit.
A friend in her 80s and I (in my 70s) visited for an afternoon. Both of us have knee problems and couldn't do any hiking. We visited the gift shop and spent an hour relaxing outside it watching the birds, squirrels, and a cuatlmundi -...More
Me and 2 other friends from out of town thought we’d go watch the sunrise and then hike up to Seven Falls...beautiful but brutal. Take at least a gallon of water per person! Some protein...beef jerky, nuts, etc. make sure to leave early in the...More

Sabino Canyon is about a 20 minute drive from Saguaro National a monument East. October is a beautiful time to visit. Mount alemmon is about an hours drive from Tucson, if you want to go to the top, which you should consider. If you want to hike in each area, it would be hard to do in one day, but if you want to take the tram in Sabino, drive the loop in Saguaro East, and drive up to Mt Lemmon for a quick stay there, it’s possible but I’d recommend staying longer in each place to appreciate the beauty of each area. Two days would be great!
It's about 2 1/2 miles each way. We are 60 years old and had no trouble with it. Not a lot of elevation gain. You do have to cross the creek 7 times by walking on rocks. I think an agile 7 or 8 year old would be fine. Feet... More
It's about 2 1/2 miles each way. We are 60 years old and had no trouble with it. Not a lot of elevation gain. You do have to cross the creek 7 times by walking on rocks. I think an agile 7 or 8 year old would be fine. Feet might get wet, the creek isn't deep. We did see kids on the trail.
