Ranger-guided Programs

Ranger-led programs are available at various times throughout the year at Faraway Ranch, Bonita Canyon Campground, and at other popular desinations at Chiricahua National Monument. This is a great way for visitors of all ages to learn more about the cultural and natural history of the park from a ranger or knowledgable park volunteer.

While ranger programs may be available year-round, there are generally more programs offered in the spring months.

See the park event calendar to see what programs are available.

Faraway Ranch Tours

Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities in consultation with NPS Public Health Service Officers, Faraway Ranch Tours are temporarily cancelled. Updates will be posted to the park website and social media channels.

Tours are subject to cancellation without notice. Call us at (520) 824-3560 or email us with any questions.

Take a step back in time by visiting the guest ranch of the Erickson family who campaigned to establish Chiricahua National Monument. Meet at the benches by the house for the 45-minute program.
