White Mountains - Kinishba

A short drive from Fort Apache is Kinishba Ruins.

The entrance fee to Fort Apache also allows you to visit the ruins you are only allowed to visit with permission so the museum staff date stamped our guide in case of any queries by the Tribal Police or a tribe member.

A dirt road takes you out to the site which was reconstructed during the 1940’s.

At one time there was a museum a caretaker who lived on site and Apache guides would provide tours. However, the museum was closed due to vandalism and now you take a self guided tour.

A stream runs on one side of the ruins.

Even with all the reconstruction it’s a very evocative place.

Have fun, we are!
