Sabino Canyon Reviews & Ratings
The amazing beauty is just BEAUTIFUL!! I went around 7:30AM and saw dear and all sorts of wildlife! The creek was flowing so that was nice!! This time of the year is so nice in the morning. You don't have to "beat' the heat so much! 👍 There are trails there for the advanced hiker/trail runner or nice easy trails too. The tram is a nice way to see a lot in a short amount of time! Happy trails! Marie
Beautiful park! The trails are well maintained. There is a shuttle service to take to to different spots throughout the park. There are several restrooms along with fresh running water outside of the buildings to refill water. Unfortunately there are no dogs allowed but I can’t fault them for that. Definitely a must see if you are in the Tucson area.
This place is amazing! The only problem is when I went, was we had to wait in the sun for 4 hours just to wait for an open shuttle. There was only 5 of us so it took a while. But once you get up there, it is super fun and I totally recommend this for the family,
It's been a long while since I've gone to this place one time that I did go ...... .gorgeous. Sabino Canyon is just that a canyon that you can hike and in the bottom of that Canyon is a flowing river. At least when I was there it still had a river. It's great for hiking for beginners 2 the most experienced. What I really enjoyed was while walking in the canyon you are far away from all the city noises and all you hear is the trickle of the water. Beautiful scenery nice quiet and relaxing. Go get your boots on
A quiet place for a hike in the great outdoors. There are some paved trails for those who want an easier hike. The ranger provides a trail map with admission ($5 for a day pass with longer passes available). Multiple restrooms are scattered throughout when nature calls.
