Agreed! Sabino Canyon can be a little busy on the weekends, but for an easily accessible hike...it can't be beat. From personal experience - bring plenty of water if you're hiking the phone line trail then back on the road. I found a couple of books at the gift shop very helpful with local plant life: Plants of Arizona by Anne Epple (for plant ID) and if you're into ethnobotany and local edible and medicinal plants go with Charles Kane's Herbal Medicine of the American Southwest and his new one, Sonoran Desert Food Plants...nice photos too!
