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 short, steep trail descending from the Ojo Agua Fria Trail to Headquarters Spring, a good source of water.
An originally well-constructed but very badly overgrown and unmaintained trail that switchbacks to the top of Snowshed Peak from Snowshed Saddle along the Snowshed Trail.
A short but steep climb from Hands Pass to the site of an abandoned aircraft navigation beacon building, with views of the Chiricahua National Monument.

A short distance into the Price Canyon Trail, this trail forks off to the left and climbs to Dobson Saddle between Dobson and Erickson Peaks.

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.

Following the crest of the Chiricahuas north out of Onion Saddle, this trail features numerous switchbacks through an alternation of burned and forested slopes until it enters a desolate moonscape north of Shaw Peak until it reaches the Hilltop Mine near Hands Pass. Midway along its length at Jhus Horse Saddle it connects to the Jhus Horse Saddle Trail and Pinery Horsefall Trail.
Passing along the bottom of Price Canyon for a number of miles, this trail connects with thePrice Shake Trail, Baker Canyon Trail and Rucker Trail before making a steep ascent to the Crest Trail northwest of Sentinel and Finnicum Peaks.

This rough, remote trail between the lower Rucker Canyon area and Price Canyon can be difficult to find in places, but provides access to a remote area of the Chiricahuas with great views.
