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.

Cochise Stronghold offers premier birding and excellent rockclimbing and hiking, and trail rides. Close by are the ghost towns of Gleeson and Courtland, as well as Pearce which is a ghost town with a few neat arts and crafts like Marcia’s Garden Natual Goat Milk Soap Shop.

We invite you come and visit our area in beautiful Southeastern Arizona. The land of the historic Chiricahua Apache, rolling grasslands and beautiful mountains. Come to the high desert elevation starting at 4200′ and enjoy the cooler summers, mild winters and the best that mother nature has to offer.
