Best Recreation Area in Southern Arizona 

Sabino Canyon

Readers Pick

You want riparian, you want desert, you wanna ride your bike up the meanest, most mo-f**kin', yet breathtakingly beautiful mountainside in Southern Arizona? Sabino Canyon is the place. It's located at the north end of Sabino Canyon Road, tucked right up against the foot of the Catalina Mountains. If you're feeling inert, there's always the shuttle, leaving every hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekdays, every half hour on weekends: $7.50 for adults, $3 for kids. For hikers, there's an additional Bear Canyon shuttle to the drop-off point for a 3 1/2-hour hike: $3 for adults, $1 for kids. Amateur tweeters, bring your binocs: The birds are fantastic and diverse. For further info (especially after the changes resulting from the recent floods), call 749-2861.
