Coronado National Memorial commemorates and interprets the significance of Francisco V
Good little hike. It was actually 5.2 miles one way. More moderate than hard. Didn't see a person during the hike on a Saturday which is pretty surprising. If you're in the SV area, have about 5 hours, and want an enjoyable hike up to some beautiful views of the city; make your way up millers peak.
Dimetri W. on Lutz Canyon Trail
We took Lutz Canyon to get to Miller's Peak. It was beautiful, challenging, and a lot of fun. Bring plenty of water and watch out for rattle snakes!
My husband and I took the kids (6&7) on this nice little hike!! It was a lot of fun, and they really enjoyed exploring the cave!! It was a blast :) it is a little steep going up and the kids thought it was kind of hard, but exploring the cave made up for it.
Dave . on Joes Canyon Trail
Me and my wife made this hike on 12-19 while spending an evening in Bisbee. It was the most remarkable part of the trip!! I truly loved it. Beautiful views of Mexico and the trail was well maintained. Met up with some fellow hikers who were friendly. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a new trail to explore. Well worth it!!!
Awesome hike, moderately challenging, great views! Trailhead begins in the Montezuma's Pass parking lot, and takes you through countless switchbacks. The summit is easily achieved with 0 climbing required. Set aside around 6 hours for the out-and-back and enjoy the hike!
Did this beautiful hike last weekend. Could not have asked for a better day. Scattered clouds, high 70's - low 80's. Saw maybe 10 others on the trail. About 10.5 miles total with an elevation gain of 2,000 feet. Challenging but very doable; took me about 5 hours and I was taking lots of pictures. Wildflowers galore and the trail was overgrown in some areas but never lost sight of the trail. So green and beautiful. No animals or trash anywhere. I did have to ration my water so make sure you take enough with you. My iPhone indicated I was in Mexico when I was standing on the peak!
its a good and challenging hike. There wasnt much trash present when i went (June 2015). parts of the trail severely lack shade (due to past fires) make sure you bring a good hat and a ls shirt. bring 3 liters of water at a minimum! I brought 3l and ran out on the way back down (3/4 near the end). There are signs of predatory animals. Bear scat was directly in the middle of the trail (fresh too) on the backside of the mountain.
Trailhead is (now) well marked, particularly when coming from Ruby. Large brown FS signs for the trail, and for the parking area across the road. There is a left turn onto route 39 about 10 miles down Ruby Road. Route 39 turns to dirt soon after. Lat:31.40493 Lon:-111.14698 (from http://www.localhikes.com/Hikes/Atascosa_Lookout_0000.asp)
The trail itself was well marked and easy to follow. I was glad to have chosen pants and boots, despite the 100F forecast. Beautiful 360 view from the top, around the various weather and communication installations. Cool at the top as well, owing to the steady wind. Past a concrete cistern, and a helicopter landing area near the top. Round trip took right at 4 hours, including lingering at the top for probably 15 minutes.
Fun little hike to take the family on! My kids are 5 and 4 and they were able to traverse the trail AND go in the cave without any problems. Make sure you bring a decent flashlight, its pitch black in the back end of the cave. Also, it looks a little treacherous when you look into the mouth of the cave but its really not that bad.
