This rugged area was used by the Apache Chief, Cochise, as a base and hiding spot from whence he led numerous raids against the US cavalry and settler in the area during the 1870s. There is a nature trail, a longer hiking trail and an interpretive trail featuring signs explaining the history of Cochise and the Chiraqua Apaches.
