In our last post we told you about our hike around the Big Loop in Chiricahua National Monument. About half way around the loop you can turn off the main trail and hike a one mile loop called the Heart of Rocks Loop Trail.
Although only a mile long, this is the most scenic part of the Big Loop Trail. This trail is listed as difficult in the park information as it goes up steeply as you start the loop then around the rim over an area of pinnacles, then steeply back down.
Along the Heart of Rocks Loop many of the pinnacles have signs identifying names people have given to the formations.
This one mile loop is really beautiful. Be sure to include it if you’re doing any part of the Big Loop Hike.
