2 years ago I weighed 412 pounds and was afraid to try anything, let alone anything this big. I'd have had a heart attack before I got the first 1/4 mile. Now at 245 lbs I'm ready and willing to try anything.

USGS Map: Miller Peak
This trail is not only easy to get to, but it provides a relatively moderate hike to
some of the best views in the Huachucas. In the process it also offers access to
two of the highest points in southeastern Arizona, Carr Peak and Miller Peak. For these reasons, this combination of trails provides some of the most popular hiking on the Sierra Vista District. To get to the top of Carr Peak (9,230'), you'll need to follow the short but steep Carr Peak Spur. The main trail continues on to a connection with the Crest Trail, which offers access not only to Miller Peak, but to the rest of the Huachuca Mountain trail network.
These trails are not recommended for horses.
From Sierra Vista, Drive south of Sierra Vista 7 miles on AZ Highway 92 to the Carr Canyon Road (FR 368). Follow FR 368 about 6.5 miles to the Old Sawmill Spring Trailhead across from the entrance to Reef Townsite Campground. The Carr Peak Trailhead is located at a parking lot just outside the entrance to Ramsey Vista Campground at the end of FR 368. Carr Peak Spur is accessible via the Carr Peak Trail.
Normally Open: March - December
