How to get to COCHISE STRONGHOLD
Directions from the west (from Tucson):
We are 80 miles southeast of Tucson, the last 3 miles are unpaved Forest Service road. It should take ~90 minutes to get here from downtown Tucson.
Take I-10 east to exit 318 at Texas Canyon. Follow this road (Dragoon Rd) through the town of Dragoon towards Hwy 191. Before you reach Hwy 191 and ~11 miles from I-10, look for an intersection with Cochise Stronghold Road. Turn right (south) onto Cochise Stronghold Road and follow it until you reach a stop sign at Ironwood Road (~6 miles). Turn right onto Ironwood Rd. You will be now driving west on Ironwood Rd towards the Dragoon Mountains.
Directions from the east (WILLCOX):
Take I-10 west to Exit 331, at Exit 331 take Hwy 191 South towards Sunsites/ Pearce, ~18 miles.
FROM SUNSITES/ PEARCE:
Just north of Sunsites/Pearce, turn right onto Ironwood Rd, which is marked with a brown Forest Service sign as the road to Cochise Stronghold. There is a bright yellow gas station, Tumbleweed Corner, at the corner. Drive west on Ironwood towards the Dragoon Mountains (8 miles).
Ironwood Rd becomes Forest Service Rd #84 after the pavement ends and as you enter the Coronado National Forest. As you pass the USFS Ranger Station, a stone house on the left, the road makes a strong S-curve and crosses the wash two times. You will notice a few private residences after you pass the Ranger Station. On the right hand side is an adobe house called Canyon Houset;. Our driveway is about 150 feet past Canyon House on the left hand side. We are the second of two driveways on the left, marked by a county street sign as W Windancer Trl, our address is 2126 W Windancer Trl. Follow the directional signs marked B&B (0.1 mile). We are the furthest south reach of this driveway. Please do not disturb our neighbors.
*Note, our driveway is 1/4 mile before the campground at the end of the road, so please don’t become concerned about having gone too far or having missed a turn unless you find yourself at the Forest Service campground. At the Cochise Stronghold Campground, turn around and go back 1/4 mile and take the first right at W Windancer Trl.
Follow the signs to the B and B. Continuing up the driveway you will see two yurts. The meditation yurt is the farther one with the raised porch.
