Welcome to the Coronado National Forest

¡Bienvenidos al Bosque Nacional Coronado!

Sky Islands

The Coronado National Forest spans sixteen scattered mountain ranges or "sky islands" rising dramatically from the desert floor, supporting plant communities as biologically diverse as those encountered on a trip from Mexico to Canada.

Discover Places

Lugares especiales

Experience all four seasons during a single day's journey. Enjoy spectacular views from the mountains, wander through the desert among the giant saguaro cactus and colorful wildflowers in the morning, linger over lunch beside a mountain stream or lake, and play in the snow all before the days end.

Tenga la oportunidad de experimentar las cuatro temporadas del año en solo un día. Disfruta vistas espectaculares desde las montañas, pasea por el desierto con los saguaros gigantes y las flores coloridas en la mañana, almuerce al lado de un arroyo o lago, y juegue en la nieve antes de que se ponga el sol.
