Le désert,quitter Tucson.


Cochise Stronghold is located to the west of Sunsites, Arizona in the Dragoon Mountains at an elevation of 5,000 ft.  This beautiful woodland area lies in a protective rampart of granite domes and sheer cliffs which were once the refuge of the great Apache Chief, Cochise, and his people.  Located within the Coronado National Forest it is managed by the Douglas Ranger District.  In Sunsites, AZ, take Ironwood Rd. (off State Rt. 191) west 9.1 miles to campground entrance. Once inside the Forest, Ironwood Rd. becomes Forest Rt. 84.  NOTE: After, 3.8 miles, Ironwood Rd. (and Forest Rt. 84) becomes a rough, rocky dirt road. There are five stream crossings on Forest Rt. 84 that can be forded if not wet weather.

A domeland wilderness in the Arizona desert that was once a hideout for the Chiricahua Apache — it’s Cochise Stronghold, where the ghosts of history and tradmasters of present mingle on some damned fine Southwestern granite.
