This trail branches off the Crest Trail #270 along the stretch that lies between Flys Park and Round Park, just south of the Wilderness Boundary. Centella Trail heads east from a junction where the Long Park, Crest and Flys Peak trails intersect.
Flys Peak Trail goes up and over the top of that mountain's 9,666 foot summit. Along the way, it negotiates one of steepest climbs in this part of the Chiricahuas. A good overlook is available a short distance south and west of the summit.
