Highlights near Picacho


Hiking in Arizona during the summer is a grueling, and, quite honestly, horrible ordeal when temperatures reach well over 100 degrees. But in the winter or spring, it's ideal! Sabino Canyon is popular for a reason, with saguaros standing guard along the many trails in this park. It's also one of the few places with water flowing which makes it all the more unique for us desert dwellers.

Sabino Canyon lies in northern Tucson off Sabino Canyon Road.

To stay in shade, and to have a hike instead of a walk on a blacktop, head to the Phone Line Trail in the morning. It runs higher above the road; is a path that you actually have fun hiking; takes just a bit of climbing up before pretty much leveling off for the majority of the hike, and you can hike back the same way you hiked in or walk back taking the paved road, or take the Sabino Canyon tram back to the parking lot. It is about 4.5 mile one way (less than 4 along the black top)
