Indian Bread Rocks

(Bowie AZ)
Indian Bread Rocks laid at the edge of the Dos Cabezas Mountains and Wilderness. Large boulders next to the camp provided for the name.

A picnic area and pit toilet were at the base of a big inclined rock strewn formation, just begging to be scaled. Did I venture? No. Instead, I hiked amongst the surrounding rocks.

A few campsites nearby were not well defined, except for rock fire rings, and cleared spots in the brush. It provided what I needed.

My stop there was for the convenience of easily getting to a ranger led hike in the mountains. The camp was not what I would consider a ‘destination’; but still, it was a decent free campsite.

    I believe Indian Bread Rocks was named for the many mortars that were created by indigenous peoples to grind grain, mesquite, and seeds into flour. Have to disagree that it is not a destination. Thoroughly enjoyed several days there climbing the rocks and discovering dozens of mortars. To each his own though.
