Huachuca Mountains Info

The Huachuca Mountains transverse the border of the United States and Mexico. They're one of Arizona's southernmost mountain ranges and a spectacular example of a sky island. Though the desert floor below exhibits extreme heat and rolling desert grasslands, the higher elevations of the mountains, including Miller Peak, are home to a forest of pine and evergreen trees. In these higher elevations, reaching around 9,000 feet above sea level, snow and winter weather are regularly expected. Much of this area is around Miller Peak, the highest peak in the mountains and namesake of the Miller Peak Wilderness. The mountains are also home to Coronado National Memorial, commemorating the first organized expedition into the Southwest by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. It's that the trailhead for the 800+ mile Arizona Trail can be found.
