Joe's Canyon Trail leading to Montezuma Pass Overlook (3.1 miles each way; great views of Arizona and Mexico, and joins up with the Montezuma Pass Parking Area), Yaqui Ridge Trail (a 1 mile detour off Joe's Canyon Trail with a steep descent) leads to the Mexican Border and represents the start of the Arizona Trail a trail leading from Mexico to Utah (not complete yet), and the Coronado Peak Trail a short detour from Joe's Canyon Trail leading to the top of Coronado Peak offering historical information along the way. Joe's Canyon Trail rises 1300 feet in the first mile and is not easy. The road leading to Montezuma Pass is closed from 15 October to mid or late November so Joe's Canyon Trail is the only way to get up to Montezuma Pass. Bring water and protection from the sun.

The photos show some of the views of Mexico along the trail.

Address: 4101 East Montezuma Canyon Road Hereford, AZ 85615
Directions: Look for the signs on Arizona Highway 92. Coronado is south of Sierra Vista and west of Bisbee.
