    Took the team to the top and hiked back down. Beautiful area. Might get your shoes wet on the way back.

    For those who can only hike short distances, the tram offers on and off stops along the way so you can hike your favorite stretch even if you cannot hike the whole distance.

    Take the tram or walk up so that you get to the top around sunset. Watch as the canyon transforms with the change in light. Gorgeous.

    Full Moon hikes are the best, no flashlights necessary. I'm serious, there's nothing quite like it. It's very peaceful.

    Highly recommend the Phoneline Trail. Go in the morning, when it's cool, and make the descent when it warms up.

    Beautiful desert/mountain scenery. Take bear Canyon trail to seven falls in July during monsoons and the view is breathtaking. Animals are very active here!

    The Tram ride makes it very easy to enjoy the spectacular views of the canyon. If you have time hike down to the river at stop #8 and have fun in the falls.

    Take the tram up to the top (current price $8) then walk back down. It's approximately 3.75 miles and a fairly easy walk.

    Sabino Canyon is a dream for wilderness hikers and mountain bikers. There are plenty of creeks, cacti and critters to enjoy (particularly at night) as well trail tram rides every 30 minutes.

    Biking one last time up Sabino before I go to New York for a week. Maybe a ride through Central Park? Sabino Canyon though, always makes me feel like I've reached Nirvana.

    Please buy an annual pass. It is cheap, only $20 for the year. Please do not park outside and walk in. If you are going to use it, help keep it beautiful and pay the fee to get in.

    I learned the hard way that they have a pretty subpar "first aid station" but the volunteers/employees are very friendly and helpful

    Watch out for the bugs this time of year (May). There is a large stretch between mile zero and mile one that is infested right now. It's annoying, but would not keep me away from being here.

    The perfect place to hike, walk, run or ride your bike. It's beautiful here. Amazing landscape. Avoid the parking fees and park close enough to walk, or pay the parking fee and help keep it beautiful

    Tram ride through several key points and you can get out and walk anywhere along the way. After all of the winter rains, it should be absolutely gorgeous. Read more
