Sabino Canyon, Tucson Reviews - Write a Review

  • This area is great for hiking. One of the prettiest parts of the AZ desert, Sabino Canyon is awesome! There is a tram that can take you up to near the top. Hikes in the area are easy to moderate. Love the telephone line trail after taking the tram to the top. About 6 miles of beautiful views + shade if you go in the morning!

  • We could see the beauty of the land and it was being enjoyed by many as we rode the tram. We chose the tram as we didn't have a long time here but wanted to know about the area. This was accomplished but felt the tram driver went way too fast. It was a fast and bumpy ride, would have been a lot nicer at a slower pace or at least stopping so pics could be taken.

  • Take tram up, beautiful walk down. Adventurous do telephone trail. Start early in day, bring lots of water, hike bottom to top. Need good hiking shoes as your on in ice edge at points. Very safe with spectacular views.

  • Beautiful location, easy walking and a shuttle with frequent stops so it's accessible for all ages and abilities. Interesting wildlife and lots of off-piste tracks if you have the time and the right footwear. Nice gift shop too!

  • Well maintained trails of various ease/difficulty and length. Paved tram ride deep into canyon available. Wildlife occasionally visible. Flowing water typically present. Water fountains and bathrooms present throughout the park. Rangers are very helpful. Recommend early morning visits. A paragon of Sonoran nature. (Commenting as a 30-year-old Tucson native)
