Visitor Center in Temporary Trailer in Parking Lot
While the visitor center building is under renovation this fall, visit our temporary offices in the parking lot. Information and select bookstore items are available daily, 8 am - 4 pm.
Information concerning road conditions to Montezuma Pass is available at the visitor center.
East Montezuma Canyon Road is paved for one mile west of the visitor center, then it is a narrow, unpaved mountain road (24 ft. vehicle length limit) to the scenic overlook at Montezuma Pass. The dirt road continues west into the Coronado National Forest.
Allow approximately two hours to tour the visitor center, drive to the scenic overlook, and walk to Coronado Peak. A trip to Coronado Cave also takes about two hours. Hiking to Montezuma Pass or the US-Mexico border takes several hours, depending on your route.

At Coronado National Memorial, endangered Lesser Long-nosed bats use natural limestone caves and cave-like mines as their homes for part of the year. Bat-gates, a special type of fencing installed by biologists, prevent humans and predators from disturbing their habitat. Bats can fly right through!
