Overview: Pioneers heading west used this northern Chiricahua canyon to circumvent Apache Pass and avoid the danger of Indian ambush there. The trail follows their old travel corridor for its entire length.
From the Emigrant Canyon Trailhead, the trail heads up-canyon following the cottonwood and sycamore-shaded streambed to Emigrant Pass. There the reward for your effort is a good view of the striking profile of Cochise Head Mountain. From this high perspective, the trail drops into Bitter Creek Canyon and continues into Wood Canyon to join Indian Creek Trail #253.
