I have lived in Tucson, Arizona for about 55 years and in all that time I have never been to the Huachuca Mountains until about a month ago when I started doing some of the sections of the Arizona Trail. I fell in love with this range and have come back many times since. On this trip I stayed in Sierra Vista over night and spent the first Day doing this trail and Joe's Canyon Trail, on the next day I hiked north from Montezuma pass. Any way back to this hike. This is a short round trip hike from Montezuma Pass to the border with a side trip up to Coronado Peak. Since this was December the weather was perfect. The Views in all directions are spectacular, particularly in the morning as the sun is rising. Not much to say about the trail, it's an easy 2 mile trek to the border mostly down hill. I recommend adding to this hike the Joe's canyon Trail and when you get done drive back down to the visitors center and check out Coronado Cave. After all that you will have done about 12 miles and will end the day without feeling guilty about not doing enough hiking that day.
