Likely In-Season!
Coronado Cave Trail is a 1.14 mile round trip hike with 475 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 28 miles south-southwest of Tombstone Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. March and November are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Starting from the west end of the Visitor Center parking area, this steep and rocky trail requires careful footing as one climbs along the limestone ridge to Coronado Cave. Entrance to the 600 foot long cave is unimproved and difficult. Small children and mobility impaired individuals may require extra assistance. For your safety, wear sturdy hiking shoes, appropriate clothing and carry at least one flashlight per person or two if travelling alone. No candles, flares or lanterns.
