"A day hike or backpack from Turkey Creek to the Chiricahua Crest Trail, 4.5 miles one way. This trail offers the most direct route from the Turkey Creek basin to Chiricahua Crest. It climbs a bare ridgetop that offers good views in all directions. Because the route has southern exposure and lacks shade, the best time to hike it is early morning, before the sun gets high in the sky. There is no water along the trail, and the nearest water source along the Crest Trail is upper Cima Creek below Cima Saddle."
