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

I live about 16 miles from this beautiful place. There are awesome views, hiking, history, camping. A definite must see if in this part of Arizona.

Small but nice gift shop. It does go up in elevation and has good roads. If you suffer from motion sickness you may want to prepare for that although it didn't bother me. I enjoyed the rock formations from the different directions. If you like to hike I would allow time for that (my back, knees, and fear of heights... More

We have a national park pass, but apparently there is no charge for this attraction. I would highly recommend it for anyone in the area. It has stunning rock formations and we even saw a black bear, a couple deer and a very small unusual looking squirrel. I wasn't expecting to see any wildlife, so we were pleasantly surprised. Great... More

The rock formations are really neat! We went when the national parks were doing free admission days, so I am not sure of the admission price. There is a visitor center with a lot of information. There are also many hiking trails. However it was way too hot the day we visited, & we didn't want to stray too far... More

As you enter the park, stop at the founders grave sites and find out how these bravo people made a life for themselves in the area. The formations are great to see and a little scary in some places. I would not want to be around when they fall. These are rocks upon other rocks. Go to the top the... More

The Chiricahuas are down in the far southeast corner of Arizona, a long pine-covered range full of picturesque rocky spires. And birds. Near the border with Mexico, they are on the flyways of many migrating birds and support their own native species, such as the trogon. A small town on their eastern slopes, Portal, and the nearby Cave Creek are... More

First let me say that I volunteer in one National Park, and visit many other National Park System properties. Making a swing across Southern Arizona from East to West, Chiricahua National Monument appeared on the map. If there is a National Monument to go out of your way to see, Chiricahua is it. The visitor center is a very worthwhile... More

We spent a day hiking in Chiricahua National Monument and could have spent a longer time. There are great views from the road and the trailheads, but if you have the time at least do the loop trail from Massai Point (Ed Riggs/Hailstone/Echo Canyon) to view and enjoy the stunning rock formations from all angles

We visited Chircahua National Monument in the early spring. It was cold, and there was still some snow on the ground at the higher elevations. Spectacular beauty! The desert floor is as beautiful as the tall mountains.
