A local friend hiked with us and knew the secrets. We are envious that Tucsonians have this in their backyard. Well-maintained paths with clear markings and a helpful visitor center make this a must-see in Tucson.

This popular hiking spot is right in the city of Tucson. A tram drives you up the canyon where you can get off at multiple stops to enjoy the views or hike the surrounding nature trails.

Sabino Canyon is an amazing jewel right by Tucson; we live nearby and can't get enough of it! It has something for everyone!!! Beautiful at any time of the year but especially so when there's been rain or snow melt feeding the creek!!!!

We took the trolley ride up and back down the canyon. But there were many hikers as well. The canyon scenery is excellent, but the current drought meant no running water in the streams. Nonetheless, we liked it very much. Allow about two hours...

After you park you can purchase shuttle tickets at the small building to the left of the visitor center. It may be cash only, I do not remember. Suggestion: ride up, walk down.

No pets are allowed in Sabino Canyon. You may hike with your dog on a leash on Mt. Lemmon, Catalina State Park, and the Loop (the multi-use path along the river banks). The Loop is nice because there are water stations set... More

No, there is no water at Seven Falls now. It will take a significant amount of rain to get the falls flowing again.
