Spread in almost 7200 kilometre square, Coronado National Forest is a vast land which includes a wide range of flora and fauna. Coronado National Forest is divided into eight wilderness areas, each of which includes hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and horseback riding. The overall environment is pleasant and you will have the opportunity of capturing some extraordinary scenery. The natural beauty of the mountainside is ethereal and a walk through the dense woods will altogether be a very rejuvenating experience. The hiking trails are not very steep so your kids too will be able to have fun.

Coronado National Forest Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely stunning. We walked the butterfly trail and then back along the forest tracks because it was getting dark. The trail was well maintained and well marked, making it very easy to follow. The loop we did was about 8 miles in total and perfect for an afternoon walk. There was also plenty of parking at the trail head. Definitely looking forward to doing more trails in the area.
The weather was awesome (light rain). It was cool and a nice respite from the heat in the valley. I really enjoy the fresh scent of pine and watching the diverse wildlife preparing for winter. It was a fantastic weekend 😁
We went to Cochise Stronghold and the area was gorgeous...we saw a buck with a pretty large rack and the a doe with two pretty small deer with her. Unfortunately the campgrounds are closed right now so we'll wait a couple of months and head on back. The area was really beautiful though. Was surprised that there a few people that have houses up there so be mindful about being around people's homes. 😉
Absolutely gorgeous. If you pack up a lunch and have a full tank of gas, it makes for a very pleasant drive. However I recommend using a car with higher clearance since most of the roads are dirt. There are also some rugged campsites around and a couple trailheads.
I always love going up Carr Canyon very beautiful. The road is super rough in spots, but I know the forest service doesn't have a huge budget.
