A Wonderland of Rocks A "Wonderland of Rocks" is waiting for you to explore at Chiricahua National Monument.

Visit the Faraway Ranch Historic District to discover more about the people who have called this area home.

Great moderate hike to see the hoodoos and balanced rocks. You can still see the effects from a fire in 2011. We did extra mile to Inspiration Point and it was worth it. Highly recommended

“Wonderland of Rocks”
Heart of Rocks Loop Trail.
7.3 miles (11.8 km) Round Trips (6.2 miles + 1.1 miles Loop). It was AMAZING hiking. A LOT OF ROCKS!! And a lot of different character of rocks. Double Thumbs Up!!

Lots of shade at the beginning. Great canopies of oak and juniper trees.

Incredible to walk among the rock formations. Did the Loop counterclockwise. The first part was very scenic on the decent which was great for photos. Having the slight accent at the end was a good choice. Would be beautiful in the spring with water running.

There's lots of places to see in the Chiricahua mountains of S.E. Arizona. Chiricahua National Monument is definitely one of them. This is called the wonderland of rocks, and you'll see why when you get here. This is a nice drive to the top of Massai Point, and the view from there is great. There are a couple other side roads that you can take to different viewpoints also. There are lots of trails you can hike along this road too. The rock formations are the highlight though. There is a nice visitor center at the bottom of the canyon, and a campground a short ways up the road too. If you are ever in this area, it's worth the drive over here to check it out, even if you don't do any hiking.

Nice hike. Awesome geology. Quite a bit of past burn evidence. Didn't see anyone else on the trail on a Wednesday evening.

I would not call it easy but more moderately difficult, especially on a hot day. We saw Coatimundi, and lizards on the trail. Saw bear and turkeys on the road out. Great hike for the occasional hiker!
