nice paved walk

My favorite Sabino Canyon hike❤️ upper hiking vistas into layers of canyons in Pusch Ridge Wilderness. Hike long or short time, it’s least crowded hike in Sabino.

Awesome hike from October to April. The best time to hike it is when Sabino Creek is flowing from the winter snow melt.

My son (7 years old) and I enjoyed the cayon views and minor rock scrambling. The girls in the family are strong hikers too. However, did not care for the heights amid some loose gravel parts.

My first hike last year visiting... Easy and bathrooms along the way. Little pools with small waterfalls near the top if I can recall correctly. Very scenic and memorable.

my favorite for walking, running and biking!

The first half hour is a little challenging depending on which end of the actual part of Phone-line you start on. This does not include the Sabino Tram Rd which goes the north part of the trail - or - Sabino Creek on the south end of Phoneline trail. But once you get to the actual trail where it levels off its a nice easy enjoyable 3 miles of breath taking views of nature. Stop and sit on a rock once in awhile and take in the scenery.

Agree that the distance is wrong. More like 4.7. Beginning and end are flat, some wide trail/road.....less appealingly.

Did this hike as a day trip, would love to spend a night at the pools next time. There is too much to do! I'd hit this hike in the Spring as the snowmelt usually fills the pools quite a bit.

We did this as a 3 day backpacking trip, with 2 nights at the pools. The trail is well-marked. There is still water at the polls. We encountered 2 separate campgrounds starting about 10 min after you cross to the south side of sabino creek then a 2nd campground another 10 minutes down the trial.

pretty view of the mountains. very easy.

Great path for running. It can get crowded at peak times, but I usually go early in the morning before the trams are running and it's much quieter. good mix of rolling hills, with a steeper portion the last 3/4 mile to the top.

If you are new to the area or new to hiking, this is a great option. It's paved so there's no need for special gear. Make sure you have enough water and protection from the sun (depending on the time of day) - there are markers every mile. I do this several times per week and almost every time is a different experience because of the abundance of wildlife and views the canyon offers.

Arrived here for a dog friendly hike; NOT DOG FRIENDLY! THERE IS A NO PETS SIGN AT THE VERY FRONT OF THE PARKING LOT. So bummed. It used to
Allow pets... not any more :(

I love this hike for initiating my loved ones! I've brought my family and boyfriend here, all of who have never really hiked much before or who haven't hiked in a really long time. It offers beautiful views all while providing an easy, paved road to walk upon. Along the way, there are a few off trail paths that dip into the cool running river that returns during the wetter months. If you get out of the way of the tram that periodically passes through along the road, you're sure to have a wonderful time!
