Sabino Canyon Wildflower Hike
Sabino Canyon wild flowers are in bloom so let’s get out and enjoy their colorful show.
We will meet at the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center Ramada. From the Ramada we will hike Esperero trail to Rattlesnake trail. From Rattlesnake rock hop over to the Phone Line link trail to the Phone Line. We will hike the phone line to Historical Sabino Trail down to the tram road and the tram road back to the visitor center. I did this hike a couple days ago and some of the Wildflowers that were out are; Desert Lupine, California Cream Cups, Parry’s Penstemo, Cryptanthas, Fiddlenecks, Wild Heliotrops, Fairyduter, Brittle Bush, and Globemallow
