The Sabino Dam lies east of the Sabino Canyon parking lot. Take the paved
road and walk toward Bear Canyon or onto the lower Sabino Canyon dam
rr take Bear Canyon Tram to stop #2. Gila Chub and Green Sunfish populate
the waters in the creek.
Take the Bear Canyon Tram route to the end of the line. The trail head
is approximately 2 miles from the parking lot and it takes another 2 ½ miles
to reach Seven Falls. The trail crisscrosses over Sabino Creek.
When the creek is dry, the footing is stable at most of the crossing
points, but when water is present, it can be more challenging. After
crossing over the creek several times, the trail rises up the side of
Bear Canyon, leveling off at Seven Falls. Hikers are rewarded with several
pools of water to relax by and wade in during most of the year.
Allow a minimum of 3 hours for this hike and
it is suggested to bring a minimum of 1 quart
of water per person.
