Coronado National Forest

Sabino Canyon is of the most popular recreation sites in Arizona and draws over a million visitors a year!
Enjoy the beautiful desert outdoors filled with hiking trails, plants, wildlife and geology. Located in the Santa Catalina Mountains and winding its way through miles of canyons with mountain peaks. Desert flora found include mesquite, paloverde, brittlebush, saguaro and many other cacti.
A peaceful setting for any nature lover and a great way to explore the desert.

We'll take the narrated tram tour, disembark for a picnic, explore at your own pace and then re-board at any of the shuttle stops. Free time to hike or just take a stroll to the next shuttle stop.

This tour includes a picnic along the trail of Sparkling Cider (No alcohol allowed in Canyon), cheese and crackers, mini sandwiches, fruit and pastries (special dietary restrictions available). You're sure to leave with a love for the desert and a great dose of the outdoors!
