Don't miss Sabino Canyon! Recommend hiking to Seven Falls (for the more adventurous hiker) or taking the electric tram up to the top of Sabino Canyon (for the less serious hiker).
Soaring mountains, deep canyons and the unique plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert all found here. Stop in at the visitors center and bookstore for information and tram rides. Guests are also welcome to hike. Paid parking and fee for tram.
A wonderful hike to a beautiful waterfall! This is a must see if you have the time and if you need a hiking buddy i'm more than happy to accompany you !
This is truly an amazing canyon! Interesting historical Narrated tram ride on the way up, 9 stops. Ride up and down all day with a pass. Gift shop, restrooms, picnic areas. An absolutely gorgeous place!
Great place to just get out in nature and enjoy the desert. Take the tram from the visitor's center to the top. Get out and walk down the canyon as far as you want before catching the tram back down to the parking lot. Such a beautiful place to walk or hike. No cars or bikes allowed so you can…
Hike up the trails or take a tram. Beautiful waterfalls flowing after the rains. Sometimes you get lucky and see some wildlife!
“This is the Avenue of the Hip in Tucson. It has been through many incarnations and has never been better. Fun shopping, food, drink, books, gifts and freaks. ”
“Museum is a misnomer. This is really a nature park, dedicated to all things desert. You'll find all sorts of plants and animals and leave with a great overview of our world. We highly recommend the Raptor Show, which only happens during the cooler months.”
“Hike the two-mile, round-trip Mica View Loop in the east region to get up close to saguaros with arms that seem to point, salute and even hug. a great place to trail run or just do an easy hike.”
“"The White Dove of the Desert" is a must see. One of my favorite sites to visit in Tucson. Go inside the church, peek into the chapel, walk around and admire the architecture, cute gift shop. Eat Indian Fry Bread prepared by a native from the Tohono O'odham tribe fried on an open air mesquite grill as you order. Climb up to the top of the hill and overlook the city. I've grown up in Tucson and going here is still a treat for me. So close to town and something you don't want to miss.”
“A quick hike around the loop or to Romero Pools brings you around the back side of the Santa Catalina mountains with amazing views of Pusch Peak. These trails are great for kids, since you're near water quite a bit and can splash in the pools. ”
