Apache Pass (named for the Apache people) (el. 5110 ft.) is a historic passage in the U.S. state of Arizonamarker between the Dos Cabezas Mountains and Chiricahua Mountains, approximately 32 km (20 mi) E-SE of Willcox, Arizonamarker.

A nearby freshwater spring, Apache Spring, was once an important water source for travelers in the desert landscape. The spring was considered such an important resource that following the Battle of Apache Passmarker, the US Army built Fort Bowie there in the 1860s to protect it.

Apache Pass is now located within Fort Bowie National Historic Sitemarker.
