"When I have out-of-town guests who want a fun hike where they can see plenty of saguaros and great desert and canyon scenery without taking up too much time and energy, I inevitably take them on the shortened loop of the Phoneline Link Trail. Everyone loves it. With a bit more time on one’s hands, the complete Phoneline Trail—hanging dramatically between cliff top and canyon bottom—makes a hiker feel like an eagle soaring in and out of gullies. Some hikers take the Sabino Canyon shuttle (see page 93) to the end of Sabino Canyon Road and hike the Phoneline Trail in reverse."
