Elevation gain/loss is displayed based on the direction of travel used in the trail description. If traveling the other direction, swap the gain and loss values. The slope value is an average across the entire trail and may not provide an accurate indication of the steepness of a trail if that trail climbs and drops an equal amount.
A spur trail off the Indian Creek Trail to Indian Cave.
Departing from the Snowshed Trail at Fossil Saddle, this overgrown and unmaintained trail drops to the area around Fossil Spring, an undeveloped seep.
An old roadbed through a nicely forested area between Long Park and the Crest Trail just south of Bootlegger Saddle.
A relatively short and steep connector between the Turtle Mountain Trail and John Long Canyon, this trail drops down from a saddle into beautiful Cub Canyon. Many forks and cattle paths, as well as flooding damage on the western end, make this occasionally challenging to navigate.
A short trail connecting the Indian Creek Trail at Wood Canyon Saddle to the King of Lead Mine Road within the Chiricahua National Monument. Can be used as part of a loop back into Whitetail Canyon via the Whitetail Trail.
A rough but short trail providing access to John Long Canyon from Rucker Canyon.
A remote, little-used but followable trail from the top end of Horseshoe Ridge out Jones Ridge to Jones Peak, with epic views of Horseshoe, Baker, Price and Rucker Canyons, and of the Chiricahua crest to the west.
Departing from Fly Saddle, this trail passes north of Fly Peak, connects to the northern terminus of the Bear Wallow Trail, and dead-ends at Centella Point, with a spectacular view of the Cave Creek Basin.
An unmaintained and somewhat rugged cattle trail along the bottom of Pothole Canyon, starting at a small turnoff in Horseshoe Canyon. The area is largely unburned, has thick oak cover along the canyon bottom, and beautiful cliff views.
This beautiful riparian trail through an oak, sycamore and pine canopy connects the Sycamore Canyon Road at the Turtle Mountain Trailhead with the Brushy Canyon Road and the North Fork Rucker Canyon Road at the Monte Vista Trailhead.
A rough climb from West Turkey Creek to the Mormon Ridge Trail at Mormon Saddle, this trail follows a beautiful canyon bottom with lush forest and moss-covered rocks and trees, but is frequently washed out and cluttered with fallen trees and rock flows from side drainages.
A low-use trail in the southern Chiricahuas, this heads north out of Tex Canyon into Pine Gulch before climbing onto a heavily burned ridge and passing Swede Peak before dropping to a junction with the Cottonwood Trail.
A steep trail which exits Barfoot Park and descends to a trailhead at Pinery Canyon Road (FR 42). Many beautiful forested areas remain, but the lower elevation and several small higher elevation areas were badly burned in 2011 and have eroded in multiple places since then.
A greater distance and higher elevation gain counterpart to the Morse Canyon Trail, the Pole Bridge Trail also climbs to both the John Long Trail and Turtle Mountain Trail, with several very steep sections. The bottom end burned in 2011 and part of the upper end burned in the distant past, with frequent deadfall across the trail through that area.
Forking off of the Rucker Trail near Rucker Forest Camp, this trail continues up Bear Canyon before beginning one of the steepest climbs in the Chiricahuas to the eponymous Raspberry Ridge and the Crest Trail beyond.
A rough, frequently washed out trail through the bottom of Red Rock Canyon which eventually climbs steeply to the ridge separating it from Rucker Canyon, passes Sage Peak, and finally connects to the Rucker Trail.
A long creek-bottom trail connecting numerous trails on the west side of the Chiricahuas with the Crest Trail at Bootlegger Saddle.
