  • On our 3rd visit to this awesome place. The visitor center is well staffed with very helpful rangers. We love hiking in the hoodoos and spires and I'm sure we will return. We've traveled for 7 years a...  more »

  • This is truly magnificent. One of the neatest hikes to date. Volcanic pillars that jut out of the mountain and landscape. It's a challenge and I'd recommend layered clothing and hiking boots as the tr...  more »

  • An incredible hidden gem in the southeast of Arizona. They've recently made the park fee-free yet it is still well maintained and has a visitor's center, campground, and multiple amazing hiking trails of varying difficulty. Recently took the Echo Canyon Trail that loops through the rocks, canyons, and trees of the Monument before circling back to the parking lot. Worth the trip to see and is currently being advocated for National Park status!
  • Well deserved great reviews on Google and excellent choice for a side trip while near Willcox. It is called a "Wonderland of Rocks", 8-mile paved scenic drive and 17-miles of day-use hiking trails, beauty, natural sounds of this 11,985 acre site. It is free, has a great visitors center, plenty of bathrooms along the route, short trails, good paved road, stunning views at pull-outs and designed parking lots. Fabulous. Highly recommended.
  • The rock formations here are quite unique and amazing. Summer gets hot, but the elevation of the park does help a bit. Still, avoiding the hottest parts of summer is recommended! This is also great because it gets far fewer visitors than many other national parks and monuments, so you can pretty easily avoid the crowds. The free guided tour of Faraway Ranch provides a lot of great history of the area.
  • So beautiful! Took the Snowbluff hike with three friends and we had a great time, beautiful all around, crisp air, loved every minute. Was a little creeped out to use the restroom right before the hike as it looks like a regular restroom but is really just a hole in the ground, but otherwise great!
  • This park is so diverse, you can find something that interests every member of the family. Hikes range from easy to difficult, and wildlife, geology and archaeology abound. Be sure to stop in at the Visitor Center. The Rangers there are full of knowledge and recommendations.
