Chiricahua National Monument
PreviousBig Balanced Rock, near the Heart of RocksNext

Like the majority of the less visited NPS units in the West, the remote location is the reason for the low number of people who come to Chiricahua National Monument, rather than a lack of things to see or do. The park occupies part of the Chiricahua Mountains in the far southeast corner of Arizona, accessible from only one direction, west, by a 37 mile drive from Willcox on Interstate 10. Highlight is the great array of eroded volcanic rock formations, split by several deep canyons, and toured by 20 miles of trails. The monument also has a pleasant, tree-lined campground.
