Super short, super scenic. After that fun switchbacking gravel mountain road - it was great to be able to make the last stretch up on foot. 360 degree views, you can't go wrong with this beauty. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

We hike up the 0.4 mile and were rewarded with an amazing 360 view. The road up is curvy, gravel and in most places wide enough for one car. If you are intimidated by the driving tight curving mountain roads let someone else drive. We drove our full sized crew cab truck up/down and really had no problems. The road is narrow, but well maintained. The hike up is easy, peasy. It is a narrow, well defined trail with steps in places. It is a constant incline (going up) with information boards about every 0.1 mile. Fantastic views from the top!!!

Once again, great views and a lot of bang for you buck. It’s a short but steep hike with a great road up the pass as well.

Distance aside this is definitely a moderate hike, it's basically a mile of stairs. If you are an experienced hiker it's nothing, it stairs, but if you are a tourist arriving on a shuttle it is going to be a tough trip up. But the drive up is beautiful and the view from the top is fantastic. There are info signs and benches along the way to rest. You are above the border and can see into Mexico to the south and the mountains of the park to the north. A must if you are visiting the park.

Quick hike to Coronado Peak. Well defined trail but it’s not really an easy hike up for beginners. Great view of the border and into Mexico. Drive up to trailhead is also kind of difficult if you have a car.

Very short hike (.3 Mile) to Coronado Peak. There are benches along the way too. Spectacular views all around. I recommend this as a warm up for Joe's Peak Trail!

Nice quick hike. Only about half of a mile from the parking lot to the peak. Took us about 15 minutes to get to the top. Beautiful view of Mexico and the other mountains around the area. There is a nice gazebo at the top to take in the scenery. I would recommend this for a quick afternoon hike.
