Come visit Sabino Canyon, one of the most premier natural areas in southern Arizona. This recreation area is located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains at 5700 N. Sabino Canyon, Tucson, AZ 85750.
Here you will find outstanding scenery that features steep rock cliffs and unique desert vegetation adjacent to riparian corridors. You may get lucky and view a Gila Monster, Bobcat, Gambel's Quail, Eastern Collard Lizard, Gopher Snake and more. The animals of this area adapt to our 100 + degree summers and mild winters. The Sonoran desert has two rainy seasons: gentle winter rains and a dramatic summer monsoon. Due to winter snow melt and summer electrifying lightning storms Sabino Creek flows almost year around. Come have a picnic at one of the many pools and cascades that grace Sabino Creek.
