Sabino Canyon Recreational area in the Coronado National Forest is a stunning place to visit any time of the year in Tucson. Only a half hour drive from downtown, you can be in a pristine desert oasis where water flows year round. Locals have over the years picnicked and swam in the waters of Sabino Creek shaded by huge cottonwoods. The canyon provides year round homes for all kinds of wildlife including the occasional mountain lion and the reclusive coatimundi. The canyon offers varied uses from guided tram rides to bicycle and pedestrian access. There is a visitor center and bookstore at the mouth of the canyon along with numerous bathroom facilities near some of the picnic areas. Ample parking is available as well.
