Best Hike

Sabino Canyon (general)

The canyon is back! After a massive debris flow shuffled the scenery around a bit two years ago (geology happens), Sabino is finally returning to normal. Even the tram is running again, all the way to the top. But we don't need no stinkin' tram: This is Tucson's favorite hiking place. Put on your fancy hundred-dollar walking shoes, grab a water bottle, and get out there. The hiking runs from an easy stroll up the paved road to a more challenging assault on the Front Range of the Catalinas. It's close by, and you've got water, trees, boulders, scenery and critters. The very best part: It's all ours, Tucson.
