“Very nice short trail !”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Very nice short trail, strenous but so short it does not matter...
0,4 mile one-way.
Trailhead is at the top of the Montezuma Pass scenic drive.
From the parking, the overlooks offers views of the Pass in both direction, east and west... but do not stay there, hike to the top !
The trail brings you up to the top of Coronado Peak which offer 360 degrees views of the region.
Simply beautiful and breathtaking views.
I highly recommend !

“Great Views”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

Had some time to spare and drove over to the Monument and then up to the peak. The road is reasonable, bit bumpy so do not go there with sports cars. parked at the top and hiked up to the peak. The views were stunning and gave a great sense of the vastness of the southwest just by looking across the valley. The staff at the visitor centre was helpful, freindly and informative. Will go back again and do the whole trail next time

“If you're in this park, you need to see this!”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

We came for the cave but the ranger suggested the extra drive. Well worth it! Gorgeous views though a bit scary on the turns at times. If you get this far, you need to finish it with the hike up to the peak. Again, great views!

BTW, make sure you try on the conquistador helmet, mail, and sword that's in the visitor center for a fun picture.

“Short hike with a very rewarding view!”
Reviewed 2 January 2010

The .5 miles is well worth taking to get to the crest of Coronado Peak, and the scenic drive up to the trailhead is almost as neat as the crest itself. The park has done a great job with trail markers and historical plaques commemorating Coronado's expedition. Be aware, however, that pets are not allowed on the trails of the park, leashed or unleashed. And while the steps to the crest are not as challenging as other scenic views (ie., Upper and Lower Falls in Yellowstone), they are quite challenging, especially at 6500 feet. At the top, though, there are numerous benches and a covered area, perfect for a few minutes dedicated to appreciating the beautiful surroundings.
