Miller Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A day hike or backpack from Montezuma Pass to the summit of Miller Peak, 5.3 miles one way.

This trek uses the southern leg of the Huachuca Crest Trail, which follows the top of the range, to reach Miller Peak. There are a large number of old mine and prospecting sites along this well-maintained trail, and the sweeping views of the surrounding country never stop. Miller Peak is the highest point in the Huachuca Mountains, and from its summit hikers can get a 360-degree view that encompasses most of south-central Arizona."

It's 2,800 ft up over 5.3 miles on the way out, and you lose it on the way back, but it's not too difficult. The vistas are great. There were patches of snow and big trees near the summit. Bring a garbage bag to clean the trail near the 4-mile point; that jct is on an illegal route from Mexico. (Note the Border Patrol at the trailhead.) Still, the trail seems perfectly safe, and it's really enjoyable.
