  • Stop in at the Visitors Center first to gain an overview of the area and specific details on the available hikes. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Drive up a fairly steep but doable drive to the ...  more »
  • Good come from far away to just park here would be worth 10 minutes and located near various parks, may be set. People I met when I visited was only a couple of hikers and Park Rangers and border patrol. No one too and I had the hiking here is good 10 minutes.

  • This is a hidden gem as far as I am concerned in the South of Arizona very close to the Mexican border. If you have limited time, you can take about a 3 mile drive up to the Montezuma pass overlook. Y...  more »

  • LEAVE YOUR DOG AT HOME!. Even though this is primarily a hiking park, they are not dog friendly. Your dog is not allowed on the trails inside the park. The hike to Geronimo's cave is worth the hike. Only two large formations and they are further back in the cave. Wear the appropriate footwear because the entrance and exit are very slippery.
  • There is a lot to see and do here and it has one of the most beautiful locations of any of the parks...and there's no fee. You can hike a half mile to Coronado Cave, bring a flashlight and plenty of h20. Or drive up to Coronado Peak to get some breathtaking views, including being less than a mile away from the Mexican border. Well worth the trip!
  • Very remote. You are as close to being in Mexico as possible without actually being there. My cell even welcomed me to Mexico so I must have picked up a Mexican cell tower. There is a dirt road that goes straight up with the most curvy hairpin turns I've ever seen. Think Pikes Peak only narrower! Beautiful scenery as you're going up and coming down. Pray you don't meet someone coming the other direction as we did. Yikes.
  • Take the family and visitors here a lot. There is a really cool cave which is easy to access. Great trail and if you drive all the way up to the top, the views are awesome.
  • Awesome staff and a truly unique slice of country. Located along the southwest border this park offers the start of the famed Arizona Trail. Plus the cross national scenery is breath taking
