Sabino Vista Knolls Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Sabino Vista Knolls is a residential community located in one of the most scenic areas of Tuscon. This aesthetically beautiful location is in the Catalina Foothills in the shadows of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The neighborhood itself, while scenic, is a little off of the beaten path. Scenery like this definitely requires a little bit of a commute to access some of the larger attractions of greater Tucson.
One of the biggest draws to the Sabino Vista Knolls is the seclusion. This heavily residential area doesn’t have the congestion of much of the rest of Tucson. It also offers some of the most impressive opportunities to get up close to nature and enjoy what the natural state of Arizona has to offer.
For many in the area, nothing beats a trip north toward the Santa Catalina Mountains. This mountain range provides recreation for many Tucson area residents and is home to several major parks. Catalina State Park, Santa Catalina Natural Area, Butterfly Peak Natural Area, and General Hitchcock Picnic Area are all part of the park system throughout the Catalinas and provide excellent starting points for any adventure in the mountains.
Depending upon what you are looking to get out of a mountain excursion will determine which area is best for you. For many, there is nothing better than spending the night in the mountains. For this, a short trip along Mount Lemmon Highway brings you to Molino Basin Campground. This is popular destination for camping, hiking, and of course, mountain biking. Another popular destination in the Catalinas is an additional mile up the road at Bear Canyon Picnic Area. This full-facility picnic area is an excellent place to enjoy a snack while in the middle of a mountain wonderland. Along the entire route through the mountains are scenic turn-offs and numerous trails perfect for hikers and cyclists.
