Not as spectacular as the rock formations across the valley at Chirichuahua Monument, still this mountain of magnificent round boulders is a must see. It was Apache chief Cochise's natural fort against the US army, and from which he could make raids on the homesteads in the desert valley below. The campground at its base is wonderfully shady, an oasis... More

3 Ghost Towns, 2 National Parks, 360 degree mountain views, Pearce Gold Mine, Amerind Indian Museum, Butter Field Stage Coach Ruins, horseback riding, biking and hiking. So much to see & do in Pearce. We stayed at Hummingbird Ranch Vacation House in Pearce.

Cochise stronghold is loaded with history. It was a favorite location of the native Apache Indians and there is no doubt why once you visit this scenic area. There is also a nice public campground with plenty of hiking and geocaching possibilities.

Beautiful place to hike or camp, but there really isn't any attraction. We preferred the hiking across the valley at Chiricahua Monument across the valley where the views are spectacular. No drinking water available.

A beautiful place worth visiting. They say Cochise is buried there somewhere. The camping and hiking areas are numerous and beautiful. If you like the old west history go visit this place or better yet camp in the stronghold.

Walk on the trails beyond the nature trail. It is a moderate trail that winds through canyons and allows you to enjoy the wildlife and plants of the special place. Be sure and bring water and stick to the trails. A walking stick is handy for walking through the rocky creek beds.

All visitor activities begin at the wooded campgrounds. The 0.4 mile Nature Trail is an easy walk that identifies plants specifically found in this location. The 0.16 mile History walk is paved and provides an excellent description of historic use of the canyon. The 4.0 mile Cochise Trail is a fairly easy hike for the first 1.5 miles then becomes...

We loved the accommodations, the natural environment, and the people. It is a remote place that caterers to people who love nature, want peace and quiet, and a wonderful community

The trail is moderate in difficulty-- about 1000 in elevation change. It is well-marked and stable, for the most part. Beautiful views at the top! You can learn about the history of Chief Cochise and the U.S. Army.

We stayed in the camp ground then trekked in the dark to get sunrise in the stronghold. Beautiful to watch. If you are thinking of trekking up there, the trees on route provide shade from the sun. A must for those who like history.
