It's an easy 1 mile roundtrip hike up to the peak. You can take your time as well since they have information along the way that you can read up on it regarding the Coronado Expedition.

We went here during the summer monsoons, so the views were cloudy and gorgeous. It is ALWAYS windy up here, which is nice because it keeps it cool. The trail obviously is uphill all the way, but coming back is super easy. :) There are...More

The .5 miles is well worth taking to get to the crest of Coronado Peak, and the scenic drive up to the trailhead is almost as neat as the crest itself. The park has done a great job with trail markers and historical plaques commemorating...More
