  • There aren't enough adjectives to say about this area. Beautiful rock formations and a very clean park area. Tons of trails and restrooms along the way. It is a little out of the way but so worth the ...  more »
  • We stopped here on our way to Tucson. My wife wasn’t feeling well so we opted to drive to Massai Point. It’s a beautiful but, scary drive and definitely worth it. Very tight turns with boulders on one...  more »

  • One of the first things we did after moving to Southern Arizona. This place was incredible. I could NOT stop taking pictures here. We ended up making a large 9 mile loop hike starting at echo canyon loop and heading towards the heart of rocks, some parts were moderately challenging but most of the trails were very easy. Make sure you get gas before entering as the closest is 30-45 minutes away and bring LOTS of water.
  • This was a place I was not expecting to be anywhere near as inspiring and impressive as it was. It is a long ways from anywhere, but so well worth visiting. You are not expecting this kind of mountain scenery in southeastern Arizona. It is gorgeous, cool, and green. The rock formations are incredible. So well worth visiting.
  • We hiked the Echo Canyon area and were very impressed with the rock formations and trail conditions. The entire loop was relatively easy hiking particularly if you go in a counter clockwise direction. We averaged an hour for each mile just because there were so many "Wow" moments that required all of our attention. A great place to hike!
  • Relaxing and beautiful hike in the Chiricahua Mountains!! So much more vegetation growing in the desert then what you would expect. Never seen anything quite like it. Worth the drive to get here from Bisbee. Wish we had more time to stay for a longer visit.
  • The hiking is awesome. If you get to the ranger station before 9 you might be able to take a free shuttle to the top then hike just down. No matter make sure you hike heart of rocks Loop and see the giant Balanced Rock. Really recommend great place.
