Coronado Cave Closure
Coronado cave and cave trail will be closed Monday through Friday due to the repaving of Montezuma Canyon Road. Heavy equipment will be operating in the wash and on the road west of the visitor center during the project causing visitor safety concerns. The cave and trail will be open on Saturdays and Sundays and the Martin Luther King Holiday on January 18, 2010.
The cave and trail will tentatively reopen on January 23, 2010. Dates are subject to change, please contact the visitor center for up-to-date information.

Did You Know?
Coronado National Memorial is home to the rare barking frog. Its presence was first confirmed here in 1993. The barking frog hibernates for almost the entire year, except for a few weeks in summer after the first heavy rains. Then, the males can be heard calling from limestone crevices for mates.
