    this is a hidden treasure. Stop by the ranger station/museum first, get the history of Coronado looking for the lost seven cities of gold. Then continue up to the top of the mountain to the viewing po...  more »

    A site managed by the NPS, but completely unknown. At the Mexico border, Coronado NM is a nice surprise, it is little frequented, but offers great shopping, and a view of the Coronado Peak Summit (2092 m) Breathtaking. A park which I didn't expect anything, but I was left a great memory free Attention, to reach the top of Coronado Peak, you have to climb a track (OK quality) but which is narrow and winding. Pretty impressive

    Off the beaten path, thus National Park is a secret. It is fee free and we only saw 5 other visitors on a Sunday afternoon. The Coronado cave us great for kids and safe for kids. We were a bit apprehensive but did it. Bring flashlights. This is also the "home" range of the only known Jaguar in the US so keep an eye out.

    This scenic drive is one of Arizona's finest. Very little traffic overall, great views into old Mexico, and the eventual passage through the berautiful Canelo Hills.

    The road up to the peak is a bit rough four a national park... Not quite racetrack at death valley bad, but could use some work. The border patrol was in the parking lot and shifted the mood from focused on nature to policing. Neat tech they had scanning the valley however.

    Very cool place to go hiking or just for a nice drive. However it is extremely close to the international border, not that that is a bad thing, I find it very cool to be on top of a mountain looking into another country, but just something to keep in mind.

    Absolutely fantastic views. The drive up is dirt, and steep at times but workable in a non 4x4 vehicle (I was in a Camry.) Small, well maintained picnic spot with bathrooms. Well maintained trail to the peak.
