Explore the Chiricahua Monument

One of the National Park Service’s best Monuments, Chiricahua, hopefully to be elevated to Park status soon, is a stunning natural wonder and should be on everyone’s bucket list.

Along with the geological nature of the park, Chiricahua is well known because of the wide range of wildlife that can be seen while hiking or driving. Rare Coatimundi, Ring-Tail Cats, Javalina, Coues Deer, Black Bears, Bobcats, Cougars and Jaguars roam the park and the rest of the Chiricahuas. Birders come here from all around the world to get a glimpse of some of the rare birds that frequent the diverse habitats of this area. In the winter this is one of the best areas to spot thousands of Sandhill Cranes in flight. In the summer this is one of the two areas in the U.S. to see the Elegant Trogon.
