COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Beginning October 8,  Fort Bowie National Historic Site Visitor Center will be open Thursday through Monday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fort Bowie National Historic Site including the ruins areas and hiking trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Access to the visitor center and fort ruins is via a self-guided, easy to moderate, three mile, round trip interpretive trail from the trailhead on Apache Pass Road. 
 
Schools and other groups seeking a ranger-led program should call the park in advance to make arrangements. When staffing permits, groups may arrange for the visitor center to be temporarily opened on a Tuesday or Wednesday, with advanced notice. Mobility impaired individuals can call for directions and use of the administrative road.
 
“The cooler temperatures of autumn make it a great time to visit Fort Bowie,” stated Superintendent Allen Etheridge. “This is a great place for a weekend outing with the family to learn about the rich history of the United States. If you have never visited Fort Bowie, plan a trip and come learn about early western U.S. and Native American history.  If you have been before, then it’s time to come again and bring a friend. Be prepared by wearing good walking shoes and bring plenty of drinking water.”
 
For more information about visiting the park, go to www.nps.gov/fobo or call the visitor center staff at 520-847-2500, ext. 1.
