Coronado National Forest

Whether you like to go hiking, camping, horseback riding, birding, or picnicking, Coronado National Forest has somewhere for you to visit.  If you are looking for a challenge, try hiking up to Millers Peak!  At 9,470 feet above sea level, it is the tallest peak in the Huachuca Mountains.  Interested in something more leisurely?  Take a drive up Carr Canyon Road road, the only road that leads into the upper regions of the Huachuca Mountains.

The view from Yaqui Ridge Trail is amazing.

Coronado National Memorial

Part of the Coronado National Forest, Coronado National Memorial has areas for hiking, auto touring, birding, and more.  The hiking ranges from easy to difficult, with some amazing views, and even a trail that leads to Coronado Cave.  The photo to the left was taken by one of our employees while hiking.  You can get to this point by a short hike from the end of W. Montezuma Canyon Road, or a longer and steeper hike from the Coronado National Memorial Visitor Center.

 

Kartchner Caverns

Kartchner Caverns State Park was recently voted the best cave in the USA!  You can book tours and plan your trip to the Caverns through their website.  Be sure to check back regularly as they host events throughout the year!
