This is a must for the adventurist. One of the few places left where you can climb into a natural cave without all the modern safety regulations. No lights, no stairs, no handrails, no paths. Truly a place to explore and imagine.
The hike to the cave is about half a mile and rises 600 feet in elevation. A bit strenuous for those who are not used to hiking uphill or used to higher altitudes. There is a nice sign with a map at the entrance. Unfortunately,...More
I love caving, so here's the good, the bad, the crazy, and the beautiful.

There are several items of interest that make up "Coronado Park", but this by far is the coolest. It is a natural cave, and is very much wild.
Before you depart, I strongly recommend you bring the following things: a lightsource (a headlamp would be...More
Situated in the Coronado National Monument on the southern border of Arizona, this is a nice short cave to explore. It is safe for families with even small children and you cannot get lost. just be sure to take 2 flashlights per person to be...More
The trail leading to this cave is totally uphill but they've made stone steps on the steepest parts. The cave itself is a natural cave and you have to climb down some boulders to get inside. Definitely for the fit. Bring flashlights and plenty of...More
