The 10,000 foot Chiricahua Mountains in the southeastern corner of Arizona provide a welcome respite from the surrounding desert. These mountains are the ancestral land of the Chiricahua Apache, who ended up at the San Carlos Reservation north of the range.
The Chiricahua Mountains are home to dozens of different animal species and a stop over point for an endless list of birds. The range is a favorite for bird and wildlife watchers. The mountains, and the Chiricahua National Monument which lies within the range, offer miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and numerous campgrounds. A scenic drive shows off acres of interesting rock formations.
The Chiricahua Mountains are located south of Interstate 10 and north of Douglas.
