Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A day hike or backpack from the Cave Creek basin to the Chiricahua Crest Trail, 5.6 miles one way.

This trail provides a brief but vigorous climb to the crest of the Chiricahua Range from the Cave Creek basin. Along the way it visits Winn Falls, a towering cataract that spills year-round over the brink of a cliff. There are also scenic views of Portal Peak from the lower slopes of the grade, which burned in 1994. The upper basin remained untouched during the blaze and still offers a taste of the virgin forest that once prevailed in the higher parts of the range. The Greenhouse Trail links up with the Chiricahua Crest Trail at Cima Saddle."
