In north Tucson. The trailhead is at the east end of Magee Road, just past Christie Drive (the extension of First Avenue).
An exceptional hike for wildlife and scenery, the trail begins with a steep climb as you enter the canyon, then criss-crosses the streambed, offering a nice variety of short climbs and descents. Pima Canyon is a Bighorn Sheep Preserve. Steep climbs and rugged trails are for intermediate and advanced hikers.
