Montezuma’s Pass
Montezuma’s Pass

Listed in , ,


Montezuma Pass is perhaps the most outstanding physical feature found in the Memorial. At an elevation of 6,575 feet the pass offers sweeping views to the east of the San Pedro River Valley and to the west over the San Rafael Valley. Interpretive signs at Montezuma Pass highlight the major landscape features looking east and west. On clear days, Baboquivari Peak, at an elevation of 7,720 feet, on the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation, can be seen 80 miles to the west beyond the Santa Rita and Patagonia mountains.

The Pass is 3 miles west of the Visitor Center and accessible by a winding mountain road that is paved for one mile and a graded dirt road for the upper two miles. Vehicles over 24 feet in length are prohibited due to steep grades and tight switchbacks. The Pass also serves as a parking area for hikers using the park’s trails and the connecting U.S. Forest Service trails in the Huachuca Mountains.
