Chiricahua Crest

Chiricahua Crest Professional Review and Guide

"A backpacking trail from Rustler Park to Sentinel Peak. This point encompasses some of the most sweeping views in the Chiricahuas. To the southeast, the Peloncillo Range rises beyond the tawny expanse of the San Bernardino Valley. The Mule Mountains occupy the southwestern horizon, and visitors can look beyond the southerly Swisshelm Mountains to see deep into Mexico."
