A great place to walk. Beautiful scenery, a 3.85 paved path, with hiking trails available too. Plenty of bathrooms along the paved path. What you need to know...$5 parking fee - if you get there early (before the entrance booth is staffed) you will need...More

The trails go along an old paved road, and through the cacti-filled single track. We also walked through the creek bed. The views are very beautiful, and it’s fun to walk among the cacti.

This is SUCH a special place. It's lovely, full of cactus including the majestic Saguaro, all other Sonoran desert vegetation, canyons and hills. Lots of hiking available, and if you're not up to it, you can take the 45 minute tram ride through the park....More

Great tram ride and hike. Tour driver was fun and full of knowledge. Lots of great photo opportunities and some wildlife. Also listened to a volunteer speak about coyotes and bobcats. Very interesting. Plus it was free!

Took the tram to the top of the canyon and walked the roadway back. Saw a mountain lion and a few roadrunners. View is spectacular, but the water isn’t running in November. Recommend this place for authentic Arizona landscape. Trails offer easy to difficult terrain.

The views in Sabino Canyon are just fabulous. A great place to visit and burn off some energy. Only a short drive from our wonderful accomodations at HAPPY CACTUS RENTALS in Oro Valley

Yes, there are wonderful picnic areas in Sabino Canyon that have tables and grills. They are often nestled into the terrain and offer privacy. Good grill. Good table. Nearby trash collection, etc. No booze though. ~ I like... More
