Driving Directions

Google Maps Directions from the Speedway and Campbell intersection in Tucson to Sabino Canyon Visitor Center.

Quick version:

  • East on Speedway (3.0 miles)
  • Left onto Swan (5.0 miles)
  • Right onto Sunrise (4.1 miles)
  • Left onto Sabino Canyon Road - the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center is just after the turn on the right. This is a busy area and on popular days the parking area can be completely full (if the parking lot is full it can be tempting to park on the wide shoulder of Sabino Canyon Road north of the parking lot - but that area is signed as 'No Parking' and the Pima Country Sheriff's Department does occasionally ticket cars parked along Sabino Canyon Road).
