Sabino Canyon is a tucson classic nature filled experience. The tram is under change of vendor operating . It was cash on rides & tours. Parking free with senior golden pass. Make sure to hydrate & wear sun hats protection and aware of wildlife .

Worth going to- the views were amazing. Pictures do not do the place justice. If you go early enough you may be able to see little animals running around.

Beware the trams are not running and told it could be 2-3 months+ before they will be up and running. Huge disappointment. We traveled from Kansas and couldn’t experience the Canyon.
