Mushroom Rock Trail Closed to Horses, Hikers Use Caution
Mushroom Rock Trail is closed to horses due to hazardous conditions caused by recent flooding. Hikers use caution. Trail is washed out in place and may be difficult to follow.
Our volunteers are "Very Important People" and provide many hours of work for which we are grateful. We thank you for your interest in our volunteer opportunities.
Location: Chiricahua National Monument is located four miles east of the junction of Arizona Highways 186 and 181. Southeastern Arizona is an exciting area where opportunities to explore the natural and cultural history of the area abound all year. Our busiest season is from January to April when temperatures are mild. Summers are warmer with temperatures in the 90s, but cooling to the 60s at night after spectacular afternoon "monsoon" thunderstorms. Once the rains begin in July, the grasslands and oak woodlands become lush and green.Opportunities and Application: After you have reviewed the volunteer opportunities available at Chiricahua National Monument, please complete the application and mail it to:

The first settlers to live in Bonita Canyon were Ja Hu Stafford and his wife Pauline. They originally built a one-room, log cabin in 1880, which grew with his family. You can still see the cabin today at Chiricahua National Monument.
