Coronado Cave


Currently, no permit is needed to enter and explore the cave. Please check in at the visitor center for more information about cave safety, cave preservation, and cave geology and ecology.

Pets are not allowed in the cave or on the Cave Trail.

Coronado Cave became part of Coronado National Memorial in 1978, when the park expanded its boundaries. The cave may have been used by humans as a shelter and hideout by middle archaic people (up to 8000 years ago) and more recently by the Chiricahua Apache and other Apache peoples, Mexican and European miners, and settlers (however, no archaeological evidence remains in the cave today). The cave is now one of the few open, undeveloped caves in southern Arizona. Coronado Cave is a large cavern 600 feet long and in most places about 70 feet wide.

To get to the Coronado Cave trailhead drive toward the visitor center on East Montezuma Canyon Rd. Approximately .25 mile west of the visitor center on the north side of the road is the parking area for the trail. It is .5 mile to the cave entrance with an elevation gain of 500 feet. Some light scrambling over slick rocks is required to descend to the cave floor. This hike is rated as moderate to moderately strenuous.

  1. Hey, you used to write fantastic, but the last several posts have been kinda boring?I miss your super writings. Past several posts are just a little out of track! come on!

  2. Thanks for giving your ideas on this blog. Furthermore, a fairy tale regarding the financial institutions intentions while talking about home foreclosure is that the lender will not take my payments. There is a specific amount of time in which the bank requires payments here and there. If you are too deep inside hole, they may commonly call that you pay that payment entirely. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of repayments at all. If you and the financial institution can find a way to work some thing out, a foreclosure practice may halt. However, should you continue to miss out on payments within the new system, the property foreclosures process can pick up where it was left off.

  3. Thanks for some other magnificent post. Where else could anybody get that type of information in such a perfect means of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the search for such information.

  4. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  5. Thanks for this glorious article. One other thing is that nearly all digital cameras are available equipped with the zoom lens so that more or less of a scene to get included by ‘zooming’ in and out. These changes in target length tend to be reflected within the viewfinder and on big display screen on the back of the camera.

  6. I just couldn’t depart your site before suggesting that I really enjoyed the standard info a person provide for your visitors? Is gonna be back often to check up on new posts

  7. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a
    blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  8. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would
    really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
