“Great views, wonderful hike”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We went early (a must to beat the heat) and thoroughly enjoyed the Sabino hike. It was a moderate climb with some flat spots on the 2.5 or so miles we followed before we turned around.

“Nice recreational area”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Amazing scenery. Walk, hike, run, or take the tram ride, but it is well worth seeing. Go early in the morning before it gets too hot.

“The Beauty of the Desert”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

A wonderful canyon and easy to see with the shuttles that drop you off to take a walk and pick you up for a ride back to the parking area. A very special place to tour and experience.

“Tram”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Be sure and take the tram ride up to the top if you don't feel like hiking all the way. You can get off at 7-8 stops along the way and hike for awhile, then get back on as you wish. Good way to see the beautiful area.

“A great walk!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This canyon is a wonderful place to walk and explore while you are in Tucson. What a rich experience it must be to live in a city with easy access to such an area. The changing colors and light throughout the day offer lots of great photo opportunities. There is a wide variety of walking trails to explore as well as the option to do a narrated open bus ride. We look forward to visiting again, walking, hiking, enjoying the exercise, the scenery and the visitors' center.
