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. You can picnic up...More

Joe's canyon trail runs from the top of the mountain to the visitor center. They have recently started a shuttle Thursday, Friday, and Saturday @8:30. The shuttle runs to the top of the mountain so you can hike from there down to the visitor center....More

The drive up to Montezuma overlook can be pretty scary, but the views are worth it once you arrive. Surrounded by mountains, but also with a view of the flats and the US-Mexico border wall, it is most picturesque. We loved it. Hiking trails for...More

This is well worth the effort to drive to. The views are stunning! The visitor center was well done. We didn't have time to hike but it will be on our list for next time

Scary drive up/down the mountain, but wonderful views. The cave is really cool, nice hike up (is exhausting) and an easy hike back down. Be careful entering cave, a bit hard too maneuver. Beautiful views all around. Must see area

The ranger was extremely personable and very helpful. I enjoyed a brief chat. It was obvious that she liked her job!

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 point. Look out for many deer and other wildliffe

This is a free National Memorial. There is a visitor center with great historical and wildlife information. There are hiking trails, but we did not do any of these. We did drive up to the very top of the mountain. The view is beautiful! You...More

The visitor's center is small, but the exhibits are well done. The shop contains books about the area and the NP official park stamp. We visited Montezuma Point which meant driving two miles on a well-graded dirt road. The view from the top was spectacular.
