Highly Recommended: Sabino Canyon

Sabino Canyon is a beautiful, beautiful recreational area located in the Coronado National Forest at the edge of Tucson, Arizona. Upon entering this national forest, visitors are given a map and a tip sheet on how to avoid problems with mountain lions. ("Do NOT run. Maintain eye contact . . . NEVER look away. Make yourself appear larger and more aggressive." (emphasis in the original)). The only place in Arizona that I've seen a mountain lion was on a golf course; no tip sheet had been provided there.

If you have the opportunity to do so, a visit to Sabino Canyon is highly recommended.
