Sabino Canyon

Located along Sabino Creek at the edge of Tucson, Sabino Canyon is a popular destination for exploring the Sonoran Desert. Known for its self-guided nature trails and wildlife and stunning canyon views, this desert oasis makes for a pleasant afternoon of hiking or picnicking.

Sabino Canyon’s history is as diverse as it is fascinating. The Santa Catalina mountain range began its formation over 12 million years ago, 7 million years before the earliest known human being walked the face of the earth. In around 5 million B.C., the mountains ceased formation around the Tucson area, setting the stage for future ecological action. Plant life first appeared between 6,000 and 8,000 years ago, and some of the earliest predominant human occupants of Sabino Canyon were the Hohokam people.
