Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A long day hike or backpack from the Cave Creek basin to the Chiricahua Crest trail, 6.0 miles.

This trip combines the Herb Martyr and Snowshed Trails, linking the Cave Creek basin with an eastern lobe of the Chiricahua Crest Trail. There are good camping spots at Pine Park; backpackers looking for a tent site along Chiricahua Crest will have to venture some distance from the end of this trail to find unburned-country. The upper part of this route was heavily burned in 1994, and the trail had began to erode by the following fall. Check with the district ranger station for current trail conditions."
