Echo Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"Winding through a stunning collection of strange rock formations, the loop hike through Echo Canyon offers a short yet memorable introduction to the wonders of the Chiricahua National Monument.

Add to this lesson in geology some fine vistas and a fascinating variety of plant life, and you have a great hike. Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936 and 1937, the Echo Canyon Trail has that sturdy, comfortable feel that most CCC projects seem to possess."

The Chiricahua National Monument is Arizona's best kept secret! The Echo Canyon trail was absolutely spectacular! The trail description was accurate, but you will have no problems finding the trailhead or following the trail anyway - everything in this Monument is very clearly marked. The hike took us about 3.5 hours but that's because my husband and I stopped every 10 feet to take a picture. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen!
