Sabino Canyon, Tucson Reviews
A must visit Tucson area State Park!! Sabino Canyon is a beautiful slice of the Western Deserts, well worth the small entry fee. We enjoyed a mildly strenuous September hike up the paved road early in the morning. We returned along power line trail. The 9.6 mile loop was mostly in the shade and was comfortable even as the temperatures rose to the low 90s by 10 am. Recommend you carry plenty of water even in the early fall.
Great hike and easily accessible trail. Was not too challenging for me. I only went about a mile into the canyon and came back because I did not pack enough water. Would love to go back and hike further into the canyon. The first bit of trail (1/2 mi) is directly behind houses and/or condominiums which was very odd to me. The rest of the trail seems to weave in and out of private land. Overall would go again but it is worth it to take the time and go deeper into the canyon because of the residential area in the beginning of the trail.
Beautiful area but it's supposed to be a riparian area in the desert. Kinda disappointed by how dry and hot it was for when we visited. Worth checking out for sure, just make sure you go when the weather is nice and bring plenty of water.
Sabino Canyon is a long time favorite for an easy hike through the beauty of the Arizona desert. The main roads are pretty wide and there are little trails that meander through lush desert landscapes. The views are lovely, and there is often deer, javelina or coyotes to make your hike more enjoyable. On the weekend, it is usually crowded so its advisable to get there early for a decent parking spot.
I hike with two kids and my parents every week here. A quick and effective work out place for our family. We come early in the morning 5:30 am and finish our hike around 7:20. Good time and place to see little animals. Many people there even in the early morning. There are bikers who share the road. Some of them can get a bit too fast. So far no accident s with them.
