Johnson Peak Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A day hike around Johnson Peak; 6.0 miles round-trip. This hike combines the Morse Canyon and Pole Bridge Canyon Trails to form a semiloop that takes in nice views of the western Chiricahuas. The loop makes a circuit of Johnson Peak, one of the few accessible peaks spared by the fire of 1994.

The trek begins with an ascent of Morse Canyon, a steep-sided valley clothed in a magnificent forest of mature ponderosa pines and Douglas firs. A steady, zigzagging ascent leads to a lofty saddle at the foot of Johnson Peak, where the trail reaches a marked junction."
