It's quite a walk to see this site, but well worth the walk. It has been rebuilt and in very good condition. The history of the site is well told.
I made the mistake of deciding to visit Ft. Bowie at 2 pm in the middle of June. Things started badly in the parking lot, which is at the trail head, which had a major yellow jacket infestation. After dodging the yellow jackets successfully, we were on the trail head. It starts with a fairly steep drop and then covers... 更多
We weren't planning to stop here but the rangers at the Chiricahuas recommend it and boy were we glad they did. Ranger Michael was great. He was full of good information and even stayed late to make sure all of our questions were answered and souvenirs were bought. We took a walking tour of the site and since it was... 更多
We learned so much about Fort Bowie. Michael was very knowledgeable and he took the time to go into such detail about the fort and it's history. Michael made our time spent at Fort Bowie so enjoyable.

Be sure to wear shoes with a tread, take water and remember sunscreen. Helpful signs along the trail describe the landmarks and historical events that happened here including a portion of... 更多
It is interesting to see the old fort and some of the other things along the way. The only down side is that it is a 1.5 mile hike to see it. We made the mistake of going in the middle of the afternoon when it was very warm. Watch out for rattlesnakes too. We had one warn us that... 更多
My kids and I got into the car to look for a ghost town, but found Fort Bowie instead. After a 2 hour drive to the trail head and an hour or so hike (1.5 ) miles, the remains of the fort were visible. There were 20 foundations, and artifacts at the ranger station. It was great to walk through... 更多
