“A half mile trail that leads to Coronado Cave, one of the few open, undeveloped caves in southern Arizona.”— David Hitchcock
Cave regulations can be found here: nps.gov/coro/planyourvisit/…
As you get closer to the cave, stone steps are cut into the trail to help maintain the trail and aid runners with the steep ascent. When you arrive at the mouth of the cave, you must scramble down some tall rocks to get to the cave entrance. While the trail ends here, your adventure at Coronado Cave is just beginning, as you can explore as much or as little of the cave as you desire.
Once you have explored the cave, follow the trail back down to the parking lot and your vehicle. Enjoy the views of the San Pedro River Valley and the surrounding mountains as you go.
