Out-and-back trail on the Fort Huachuca Reservation in the Miller Peak Wilderness area. Vehicle with good ground clearance and preferably 4WD helpful for reaching the marked start of McClure Canyon about a half-mile from the turn-off from Garden Canyon Road. Otherwise, starting from the turn-off is also a good hike.
Trail starts as an unimproved road before narrowing to a path suitable for foot-traffic only for the ascent to the crest, where a hiker can likely reach Huachuca Peak. Trail is mostly shaded, though there are exposed sections higher up. Difficulty is moderate, with approximately 2000 feet of elevation gain. Unlike nearby Scheelite Canyon Trail, there are no portions where scrambling/climbing is absolutely necessary, though quick jaunts off-trail for scrambling can be made.
