Coronado National Memorial Information

Coronado National Memorial is situated in the southern Huachuca Mountains. It commemorates the first organized expedition into the southwest by conquistador, Francisco Vasquez de Coronado and is home to a rich diversity of wildlife, vegetation, and fantastic mountain views of the surrounding desert. It's southern boundary lies along the border of Mexico, marked with a ceremonial obelisk that also acts as the southern terminus of the Arizona Trail (AZT). The AZT is an 800+ mile trail that begins at the obelisk and travels north through Arizona to Utah. To the north of the park is the Miller Peak Wilderness, a fantastic and representative example of one of southern Arizona's sky islands. From Montezuma Pass, visitors are encouraged to hike up to nearby Coronado Peak. This provides an excellent view of the surrounding region.
