I really loved this place, the main road will take you to some great exhibits with a few short nature trails, they have a daily shuttle that takes you to the top so you can hike down, the hiking trails are as easy as you want them or fairly long and complex, so there is something for everyone. The campgrounds... More

we trekked here Nov this year. The trail was washed away however the navigation was easy as there was prominent linear features to work off. Only adding to the adventure. When we got higher up the air was saturated with moisture and a drop in temp made the place look like a scene from a post card. Well worth the... More

We didn't know what to expect, but the Chiricahuas offer the most amazing vistas, and the rock formations are equal to Bryce Canyon. The Echo Canyon loop trail is one of the most memorable hikes in North America.

We stayed in Tucson and bit the bullet and took the two hour drive to the Chiricahua National Monument. We were awarded with wonderful sights that were part of an inactive volcanic range 20 miles wide and 40 miles long. The eight mile Bonita Canyon scenic drive up to Massai Point has unique rock formations and great views. At Massai... More

This is a Must do! in the south east of Arizona, if you plan to go to tombstone, add this to the trip! Beautiful nature, rocks standing up, as if stacked. It's an oasis, lush and green in the valley, and a "Bryce Canyon" on top.

There was no entrance fee this summer. Maybe people are not visiting in the numbers that a place this interesting deserves. We liked it immensely. The rocks are part of an ancient volcanic complex, and they have been eroded into spires and ribs that look like giant fingers emerging from the earth. There are plenty of trails to follow for...

It seems everyone wants to see the Grand Canyon in Arizona - well, I cannot argue with that. However, this spectacular monument comes in at a close second, in my opinion. We had a personal guided tour of the original Faraway Inn given by the Park Service - it was great! Then we drove our motorcycles up to the top... More
