Sabino Canyon is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Tucson and permits the use of mountain bikes before 9am and after 5pm. The views from within the canyon, particularly if you take one of the many offshoot trails into the wilderness, are amoungst the most stunning in southern Arizona. Sunsets in this area are gorgeous, almost every day. The trail is mainly fire road and old asphalt that present little difficulty, but the hike or ride into the canyon is worth it to enjoy the cool breeze in the summer and serene beauty of this lush oasis in the desert.

Bikes are only permitted before 9:00am and after 5pm.

You can get a complete map at the visitor center. It's a good desert hike with easy access Downside It's possible to get on the wrong side of the creek and there are no easy crossings during high water season you'll likely get wet fording the creek. According to signs you aren't supposed to do this. Comment Some of this hike can be on roads. There is a shuttle bus service in the area too.
