Nice trail! Grottoes are phenomenal!

I got there for sunset shots and it was amazing. It was dusk hiking out and dark last 1.5 miles. I came from the visitor center and the trail is easy to navigate at night.

I was going to take the south fork up to sentinel peak, got to where the fork splits and starts climbing. Super overgrown, spent an hour backtracking looking for cairns and ribbon, lots of fallen trees and slides. Seems like most people just take the trail to where there’s water flow and pools to dip in, second half of the trail is boring, overgrown and not really worth it.

Nice, short hike also for august. Recommend to do it anti- clockwise.

Took my 2 German Shepherds with me. And they had a blast! Always love hiking this trail. Water crossing were easy. Plan on getting your feet wet. And wear bug repellent. The mosquitoes were blood thirsty today

Beautiful 360 hike of Masai Point very easily marked..

Great place to watch the sunset after the quick hike!

Beautiful views from the top!

Great hike. Followed other reviews and started counterclockwise and glad we did!

Very hot up here today (90°). We’ve done this several times in cooler weather, but today drove home how exposed this trail is in hot weather. The Hailstone section especially was tough: no shade and radiant heat the entire time from being south facing.

Lots of rocks in place to make steps- good shade spots throughout the trail. Awesome rock formations. Easily connects to several other trails which is nice.

The trail is well maintained with 15 placards giving information about the landscape and rock formations. The trail is mostly gravel with large rocks in place to make steps. Not a flat trail but easy. Beautiful views.

Beautiful hike. Two members of the group got attacked by coatimundi defending their nest so be careful!!! It can get hot with all the rocks absorbing the days heat so go early.

Super easy trail just a 0.5mile. Scenic views here are amazing. A must do train in Chiricahua. No need for special gear for this one.

Just a beautiful hike. The rock formations in this place are amazing. The trail is well maintained and rated moderate. If you are doing the 3mil loop I recommend starting from the right side since have the most scenic views. The left side is easier to come back up. This is a must do hike in Chiricahua since is a lot to see here. Bring plenty of water and nice hiking shoes.

Beautifully built trail. stunning hoodoos and pedestals on echo cyn to the grotto, then down to cool and riparian at the bottom of the canyon , up to spectacular heart of rocks and then back to the parking lot with great views along the way. perfect weather 65-73 unusual for memorial day.

Excellent trail. Lightly trafficked. Arizona’s version of Bryce Canyon Utah. Roads are all drivable with any car. I hiked the big loop (8mi) counter clockwise. Very well marked. You can drive up to parking from the visitor center to Echo trailhead. 20 parking spots. Good mix of shade and sun throughout. Beautiful views and interesting rocks at every turn.

Beautiful and very underrated trail! I found the parking lot for this trailhead by making a wrong turn and decided to hike it because of how short it was. The hike to the top is short but goes all around the mountain with a beautiful 360 view of the canyon waiting for you at the top along with some history of the monument.

Absolutely beautiful! A must do hike when visiting Chiricahua National Monument
