Sabino Canyon Recreation Area
Experience the beauty of one of the most unique Southwestern desert canyons on a Sabino Canyon tram ride.

The stream here, which is one of the few continuous sources of water in the area, attracts all kinds of birds and other wildlife. During the winter and summer rainy seasons, pools of water form in rocky outcroppings that wind up among hillsides resplendent with palo verde trees, cholla and prickly pear cactus and graceful groves of ocotillo.A narrated, educational 45-minute, 3.8 mile tour into the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Daytime rides 365 days a year. Moonlight rides three times monthly Apr.–Dec.
