Author Full Detail Guide
Greens Peak Trail is a 1.2 mile one way hike with 850 feet elevation gain. Located 89 miles north of Safford Arizona. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. July and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.

A fairly nice trail heads down the northwest side of Greens Peak. I went down a ways until it splits and turned around. There was a nice large male turkey to admire at the turnaround point. It is much better for hiking than the Candy Mtn Trail, but I only found that out later. Somebody can hopefully finish this trail to the bottom to complete the description.

Check out the Official Route.
