Great place for photos. Bring lots of water and snacks if you hike. The people who were not able to hike took a tram up the mountain.

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!

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.

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
