Apache Pass

Adventure along the wild road to Apache Pass

Apache Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.563m (5,127ft) above the sea level, located in Cochise County, in the southeastern corner of the U.S. state of Arizona.

Tucked away between the Dos Cabezas Mountains and Chiricahua Mountains, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Apache Pass Road. The terrain is all desert, so bring lots of water.

Located within Fort Bowie National Historic Site, the pass, also known as Puerto del Dado, is 32.83km (20.4 miles) long, running north-south from I-10 (near Bowie) to AZ-186.
