  • Sabino CanyonSabino Canyon Tucson, Arizona
    Sabino Canyon is a marvelous canyon found in the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Coronado National Forest just north of Tucson, Arizona and is one of the most popular recreation areas in the southern parts of the state. It is a fantastic place to walk, hike, jog, run or ride. Just minutes away from the desert are huge beautiful waterfalls, with small bridges built over them and marvelous wildlife like mountain lions, deer, skunks, javelina, rattlesnakes and tortoises. Some of the first people in the area were the Native American Hohokan people. In 1887, a large earthquake centered in northern Mexico knocked loose massive boulders that had lined the canyon walls and ended up in the valley below. In 1905, the canyon began being taken care of by the newly created U.S. Forest Service and in the great depression, the WPA built the bridges that spanned Sabino Creek and the Sabino Dam. In 1978, the first trams started to run to the canyon and the canyon could only be accessed by bicycle, tram or on foot. Tours started in May of 1985 and gave visitors the chance to experience the wonderful beauty of the canyon and surrounding desert.
