In south-eastern Arizona, about 30 miles south of I-10, this is a spectacular place to visit and hike. A little out of the way and not much visited, we enjoyed a quiet and solitude on the trails that you rarely get in the larger and more visited parks. Called the "Land of Standing up Rocks" by the native Chiricahua Apache,... More

A great place to visit. Good hikes. My children (ages 8 and 5) had a good time earning their junior ranger badges. Helpful park rangers. Did not have a fee to enter the park.

This "Land of Standing Up Rocks" was spectacular. There are so many trail options we are already thinking of an autumn return trip. Choices for all abilities. The drive from the visitor center to the summit is a must! multiple pull-outs to take in the view. Short, easy nature trail at the top, with awesome views! There apparently is a... More

Went to view this monument as a day trip during a weekend getaway to Wilcox and am glad I did. If you are in the area take the time to take in the wonderful views and drive to this location. Believe me pictures don't give justice to the feelings you'll experience here. It's remains one of our favorites in Arizona.... More

With so many different hikes you'll be sure to find one you like. The staff at the visitors' centre was extremely helpful. Be sure to watch the orientation video. Ask about the hikers's shuttle that will take you to Masai Point or Echo Canyon parking lots. We didn't know about this and might have utilized it during our planning. We... More

This was a great place for hiking. The rock formations were spectacular. The restrooms near the VC were modern and clean!

A jewel of a site that few people know about. It was worth a special trip just to go there. Great photo ops!

In my opinion this park is very much worth the 30-some miles off the freeway. You can spend as much or little time as you like. There's an historic ranch with a family cemetery, a very nice and informative visitor center, and then the wonderland of rocks. While driving to and fro Masai Point, it's hard to take your eyes...

A February trip with temps in the 60s and sunshine was perfect for this adventure hiking amongst carved rock pillars and sculptured canyons. First time visitors should begin at the visitors center where informative displays and very helpful rangers guide you to appropriate hikes for the time and interest you have on your visit. There are a number of 1-2... More
