CCC road construction crew works on park road in 1930s

We're continuing the tradition of quality work at Chiricahua. In the photo a CCC crew works on Bonita Canyon Scenic Drive in the 1930s.

Road Improvement Project begins January 18, 2016

Beginning on January 18, 2016, Bonita Canyon Scenic Drive will be undergoing much needed road improvements and repairs. The road from the campground and up to Massai Point will be closed from January 18th through February 17th in order to provide maximum safety to visitors and road crews. There will also be road work between the park entrance and the visitor center. Expect road delays as only one lane will be open to the visitor center. The visitor center, Bonita Canyon Campground, all hiking trails, and the lower canyon (Faraway Ranch, Silver Spur Meadow Trail, and the road from the park entrance to the campground) will remain open during this time. For more information please contact park staff at the visitor center at (520) 824-3560 x0, or email us at
