Heart of the Rocks Loop (part of the Chiricahua National Monument), is a trail that allows access to a hidden geological gem near the border of Mexico and Arizona.

For an easy and quick experience, just drive to Massai Point for some cool historical facts, spectacular views, and interactive equipment. Then take the Heart of the Rock Loop which goes deep down into a canyon-like structure, then leads you upwards and back into the astonishing rock formations! 

Know Before You Go

Once you arrive at the National Park (no fee to enter), there is a gift shop, running water, clean bathrooms, and maps. Be sure to wear shoes with good grips as the trail has a lot of rocks and uneven ground.
