Plan Your Visit


Make the Most of Your Visit

Spend a few hours and discover the incredible legacy of Fort Bowie. Start your experience at the trailhead on Apache Pass Road, for a 3-mile round trip hike. The trail winds past remains of a Butterfield Stage Coach Station, the post cemetery, an Apache wickiup, the Chiricahua Apache Indian Agency, Apache Spring, the original fort and finally the more elaborate Fort Bowie and the visitor center.

A minimum of two hours is recommended for the round trip visit. While at the fort, visitors can tour the ruins of Fort Bowie, view the exhibits insidethe visitor center, bird watch, and hike the trails. Picnic facilities are located at the trailhead and the visitor center. Leashed pets are welcome onthe park's trails. Pet owners must clean up after their animals.

So, check out our ranger programs, a brochure or the kids' Jr. Ranger program,and prepare for your trip! Oh, and don't forget to check the weather!
