Best Recreation Area in Southern Arizona

Sabino Canyon

After two years on the mend from torrential floods, Sabino Canyon is once again ready for visitors. The washed out road has been rebuilt, patched and paved all the way up to the end of the line to make way for eager walkers, picnickers and shuttle riders. For the more adventurous, the hiking trails of the canyon have been freshly cleared and are ready for all able wanderers. Although in recent years, it has been an exhibition ground for nature's power, Sabino Canyon remains a place to witness nature's beauty as well. Choose your season, and see our own desert oasis watered by summer rains or winter snowmelt, alive with autumnal leaves or bursting with springtime verdure.
