“Geronimo's Hide out”

“Did the climb but unable to get into cave”
Also called Montezuma's Treasure Vault and Geronimo's Cave, this subterranean system extends approximately 600 feet in length and is believed to have been used by the Apaches as a hide-out from the U.S. Army in the late 1800's.

This is a must for the adventurist. One of the few places left where you can climb into a natural cave without all the modern safety regulations. No lights, no stairs, no handrails, no paths. Truly a place to explore and imagine.

The hike to the cave is about half a mile and rises 600 feet in elevation. A bit strenuous for those who are not used to hiking uphill or used to higher altitudes. There is a nice sign with a map at the entrance. Unfortunately,...More

I love caving, so here's the good, the bad, the crazy, and the beautiful. The Good: After the moderate scramble down the mouth of the cave, it opens nicely with a mostly dust and small rock floor. Walking is easy and the ceiling is high....More

My back issues prevented me from scrambling down the rocks to get in. Others in party enjoyed it. Rangers lead walks on Saturdays in season-check the website. Hike is not difficult, but strenuous, especially if you aren't acclimated to altitude. Bring water, hat and sun...More

After a relatively short uphill hike, you are greeted with the cave entrance - a jumble of rocks you have to climb down into the cave. This gives you the feel of a real adventure. We had an underpowered flashlight which made the cave seem...More

This cave is a short hike into the Huachuca Mountains. One must slide down some tall rocks to enter the cave. Once in the cave and away from the opening, it is totally pitch black in there. We used flashlights and a palm beacon to...More

Not an easy hike to the entrance. Nor was the descent to the first room. My 10 year old son made it though. Greeted by a couple of bats which was a cool experience. Walking around the cave and seeing the formation was out of...More

There are several items of interest that make up "Coronado Park", but this by far is the coolest. It is a natural cave, and is very much wild. Before you depart, I strongly recommend you bring the following things: a lightsource (a headlamp would be...More

The trail leading to this cave is totally uphill but they've made stone steps on the steepest parts. The cave itself is a natural cave and you have to climb down some boulders to get inside. Definitely for the fit. Bring flashlights and plenty of...More
