One of the trails in the Chiricahua National Monument is the Hailstone Trail. It is called this because there are numerous small rocks along the trail that resemble gray hailstones. The Hailstone Trail is .8 miles (or 1.3 kilometers) in length and connects to the Ed Riggs; Mushroom Rock; Echo Canyon; and Upper Rhyolite Canyon Trails. It is part of the Echo Canyon Loop (a trail I highly recommend).

Equipment: A good pair of hiking boots, a hat and/or jacket (weather dependent); water, sunscreen.

Address: 13063 East Bonita Canyon Road, Willcox, AZ 85643
Directions: The best access to the Hailstone Trail is via the Ed Riggs Trail or the Echo Canyon Trail.
