What a great park! The selection of trails offer something for everyone. From short 1/4 mile nature walks to long, challenging hikes miles long into the surrounding mountains. Arrive early, before the heat kicks in and pack water and a good hat. The $5 entry...More
What an absolutely beautiful gem we have here in Tucson. One of my favorite places to walk, and favorite place to show out of town guests. The canyon is a desert paradise, with a flowing stream, beautiful Saguaros, trails, etc. When in Tucson, do not...More
Sabino Canyon is absolutely gorgeous. I don't recommend going during the summer if you do take lots of water. The hiking trails are incredible. Wonderful place to take the family nice picnic areas. Convenient location. Near places to eat. Wonderful sites absolute beautiful desert view
Beautiful hiking trails and great place to experience the Sonoran desert. The gift shop is a wealth of information and docents and rangers,some volunteer some not, are well educated on all aspects of the desert. A place not to be missed when visiting Tucson.
This is a spectacular hiking venue. Complete with a variety of hiking trails for all hiking levels and a friendly staff at the visitors center. Highly recommended. Lots of local day hikers. Beware that parking fills quickly on the weekends.
What a great time to spend with family and friends getting some fresh air, excise and just opening senses to hearing birds, listen to Zen experience of water trickling down a babbling brook. Talk about relaxing, empowering yourself.
This lovely place is wonderful for a hike. It delivers great desert views and a peaceful environment. It also connects to Mt Lemmon so if one is interested in a bit of a longer hike, this is a great place for that.

Sabino Canyon is about a 20 minute drive from Saguaro National a monument East. October is a beautiful time to visit. Mount alemmon is about an hours drive from Tucson, if you want to go to the top, which you should consider. If you want to hike in each area, it would be hard to do in one day, but if you want to take the tram in Sabino, drive the loop in Saguaro East, and drive up to Mt Lemmon for a quick stay there, it’s possible but I’d recommend staying longer in each place to appreciate the beauty of each area. Two days would be great!
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
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 might get wet, the creek isn't deep. We did see kids on the trail.
