While I was reading up about the Cochise Stronghold trail, I came across a description of a back country camping area off the west part of the trail. Seems that if you take this pretty well defined path off to the right (as you head west), you head down to the canyon bottom and can find some sweet camping spots. I did find the side trail, and it did lead quite easily to the canyon bottom, but from there it got a bit scrambly and I wasn't in the mood to get wet feet (lots of pooled water down there). Does anyone know how far back this camp area might be and how large it is? I'm thinking this would be an excellent hike for some beginning backpackers, but I don't want to take a group down there if there isn't much room... Water may be an issue, but it's something I could definitely check out in advance just before the trip.
Thanks oh knowledgable trail gods!
It troubles me that these days no matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up
