Fort Bowie National Historical Site

Getting Here and Around

From Chiricahua National Monument, take AZ 186 west (about a 30-minute drive); 5 miles north of the junction with AZ 181, signs direct you to an unpaved road leading to the fort. Upon entering the site, you'll drive down a winding gravel road to the parking area, where a moderately challenging walking trail leads 1½ miles to the visitor center and ruins.
