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!

Best hike I've done in Southern Arizona! Cool geology and reasonable temperatures made for a great day. We hiked this trail in late spring. I'm sure it's much warmer mid-summer.

Unique sightseeing. Starts really easy and gets only a little strenuous. Went in mid July and it was a nice hike even at 92 degrees.

Loved it!
