One of the highlights of the Echo Canyon Loop Trail in Chiricahua National Monument is The Grotto, a stone cave-like hallway of sorts, worn between a grouping of large hoodoos.
We hiked the 3.3 mile Echo Canyon Loop 3 years ago and wanted to show my visiting family the coolest part of the trail. The Grotto is an easy and beautiful .5 mile hike from the Echo Canyon trailhead. Since this would be an extremely short hike, we spent some time at Massai Point beforehand enjoying the view and taking photos.
And on to Echo Canyon Loop!
Watch out for falling hoodoos! 😉
