Great visit. Got to the park at about 11 am and took the tram to the last stop. Hiked up, across, and down to stop#7. Beautiful 3 mile hike through valley canyon wall. Cacti were blooming - prickly pear, etc... Temperature was in the upper 80s and we had plenty of water...beautiful after a Michigan winter.

A great day trip, almost within walking distance from our daughters home. Wishing we had done it before. The senior life time pass is a fantastic bargain. Ride the shuttle up and walk back down, great way to get the most viewing pleasure.

On the northeastern edge of Tucson, Arizona you can ride the Sabino Canyon Tram 3.7 miles for a 26 minute ride to the end of the road in this desert oasis canyon. The canyon has a creek that flows most, if not all year long with beautiful native desert trees lining the banks and an occasional small waterfall. There are... More

We enjoyed a nearly 4 mile hike through the paved canyon road over several small bridges. Since it was April, the snow melt was running downstream from the mountains. Not a terribly difficult walk if you stay on the paved trail.

We took the tram tour through Sabino Canyon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Be sure to take a bottle of water and your camera. We recommend closed shoes, like tennis shoes, or hiking boots if you are a serious hiker. The scenery is worth the effort.

Was a very nice place. Recommend taking the tram if you've never been here before. But, watch were you walk.

We have a friend, who lives in Tucson, not too far from Del Sol. He recommended going here and we were blown away! Put this on your list of "must see" places. Views were beyond description.

Absolutely gorgeous view, nice place to eat lunch, tram rides available or you can hike! Numerous amounts of stops where you can step out of the tram and there's even spots to swim! You don't have to worry about a specific tram to wait for you because they run all day, make sure you keep your ticket though!

Will definitely be back to this beautiful spot. One can ride the tram to one of the designated spots and get off and explore that area and either hike back down or wait for tram. Tram ticket good all day. Also nice for folks who don't want to hike but can get a nice sense of the beauty of the... More
