Wonderful place and truly amazing. Drive to the top and take a hike or just take in all the wonderful views. Then as you drive down stop at all the places and look at the different formation that are marked.

Two night stay at Bonita Canyon Campground within Chiricahua National Monument. Stayed at site 12 in a tent. Great site for tent probably not for trailer. Better trailer sites were 18 and 11. Not fire rings and fires had to be made in elevated grills, not the best situation. There were flushing toilets and running water, a plus for a... More

Loved this place. Wish we could have spent more time here. Several different ecological niches meet here so the animal and plant species are varied. The geology of the area provides spectacular rock formations and features. Hiking among them is like hiking through a maze with rocks balanced precariously on end or lying on each other at ridiculous angles. We... More

Wow, what a surprise this park was! Who would have known there was such a gem with in the park service as Chiricahua National Monument. Drove the back roads into the park which was a trip in itself. Many gorgeous views and vistas to go along with the feeling of what it must have been like for the early settlers... More

What a fabulous place to visit! We loved all of the rocks and trails. It was absolutely beautiful. Driving to the top was great. The views are something to behold. The only thing I was disappointed in was the video presentation at the visitors center. I would have liked to have heard more about the Chiricahua Indians that inhabited the... More

The park service really does it well here, well marked trails, some of the most beautiful scenery in America and easy to get to.

Was free and we stopped at the visitor center to get a map. There are many places to hike and drive to. My girls age 10 and 15 loved the views and finding all the different wildlife we saw and reading about the history

This place has some fantastic vistas and the Heart of the Rocks loop might be one of my favorite hikes there is. Today my wife and I started the Big Loop at Massai Point and going counter-clockwise. Not strenuous but might be a little long. The Heart of the Rocks is totally worth the visit! You hike with the rocks... More

I can't describe in words the awesome natural beauty of the mountains and rock formations in the national park. Go there! It is well worth spending a day or two hiking this beautiful area. There are short easy hikes and longer more strenuous ones. You can also just drive to a few lookout points for amazing views.

To enjoy the area most, my husband and I would recommend that you take one of the trail walks to get up close. We did the 3.5 mile Echo Canyon Loop. On a Wednesday, it was so peaceful. We only met one couple on the entire loop. Birds & butterflies darted about and the rock formations made for a lovely... More
