If you are afraid of heights, let someone else drive your vehicle. If you have a mountain bike or cross bike, ride to the top. There is a short hike and many other side trails when you get to the top. If you're cycling you can take the fire road down the other side and out towards Parker Lake for... More

The staff is very friendly at this small visitor center that does a great job at encapsulating the history of the southwest. There are hiking trails and driving routes that give you awesome views of the area. It is worth stopping just to see the visitor center or a longer visit that includes a hike.

although the drive to the top was a little scary, it was well worth it. When you get to the top of the mountain after hiking about 1/2 mile the views are amazing. you can see the border line of the US and Mexico along with the rugged terrain and beauty.

I have taken the drive up Coronado mountain many times over the years to show guests the view from the top. I was surprised to see they upgraded the visitors center 6 to 8 months ago. Photos, maps, interactive items -they did a nice job. The park rangers are informative, there is a small gift shop, and as before -... More

This National Memorial is not really on the seeing it is located on the border with Mexico. The Visitor Center is a great place to learn about the travels of Coronado who was the first European to visit places in the US from Kansas to Arizona. The road up to the Montezuma Pass is dirt and a little bit washboardifferent,... More

We were visiting the Sierra Vista, Hereford area on a house hunting trip, and visited the Coronado monument with our 11 & 12 year old. Probably some of the historical significance was a bit advanced for them, though as adults we really enjoyed it. Brought back grade school memories of history class. But for the kids, the staff there was... More

Great views of the mountains as you drive through the park. Welcoming visitors center. Choice of a few short (1mile) and longer hikes. Only had a quick look, but the picknick area lookt great. People say the cave is worth a visit, but we had no flashlights with us.

The memorial had a lot of information about the area as well as the history of the pass. You can drive to the top and there is an incredible view!!

I love taking visitors our to Coronado National Memorial because the view is awesome. You get a bird's eye view of the Arizona/Mexico border. The visitor center recently underwent a much-needed remodel.
