Dragoon Mt

Dragoon Mt

Dragoon Mountains are a range of mountains located in Cochise County, Arizona. The range is about 25 mi (40 km) long, running on an axis extending south-south east through Willcox. The mountain range is one of Arizona's "sky islands".

Mt. Glen (7,512 ft/2,290 m) is highest point in the range according to the Columbia Gazetteer of the World.

The warrior Cochise defeated a small force of Confederate soldiers here at the Battle of Dragoon Springs.

Cochise Stronghold Memorial Park lies near Mt. Glen on the eastern slope of the range and the historic town of Tombstone can be found at the southwestern portion of the range. There are also several ghost towns in the Dragoon Mountains including Gleeson and Courtland.

The Little Dragoon Mountains are the continuation of the Dragoon Mountains north of Texas Canyon.

The mountains were included in the short-lived Dragoon National Forest, which was established in 1907 and combined into Coronado National Forest in 1908, in the Douglas Ranger District.
