Herb Martyr #247 is a 2.65 mile one way hike with 2,234 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 40 miles north-northeast of Douglas Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. October and April are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Overview: South from Herb Martyr Campground, the Herb Martyr Trail crosses Cima Creek and follows Cave Creek toward the Chiricahua high country. The riparian vegetation along this stream provides good birdwatching close to the campground, but the trail actually only follows the stream for two short stretches. After leaving Cave Creek for the second time, Herb Martyr Trail begins one of the steepest climbs in the Chiricahuas to a junction with Snowshed Trail #246 just below Pine Park.
