Search Willcox Arizona

The Dos Cabezas Mountains Wilderness consists of 11,700 acres and lies 20 miles east of Willcox and seven miles south of Bowie, Arizona. At elevations ranging from 4,080 feet to 7,500 feet, visitors will find a diverse terrain consisting of steep mountain slopes, granite outcroppings and vegetated canyon floors which provide for a variety of plant and animal life, as well as excellent recreational opportunities.

The rugged and remote Dos Cabezas Mountains Wilderness provides outstanding opportunities for hiking, backpacking, camping, rock scrambling and sightseeing.

Outstanding long distance views of Sulphur Springs, San Simon Valley and numerous other mountain ranges can be had from the higher mountains and ridges. The several developed and natural springs provide enough water for an abundant wildlife habitat, including white-tailed and mule deer, mountain lions, golden eagles, and bald eagles.

To access the Dos Cabezas Mountains Wilderness, visitors from Bowie are directed to travel south along Apache Pass Road and then west on the dirt road leading to Happy Camp Canyon.
