Great hike to bag Chiricahua Peak & Flys Peak :) :thanx: Shawn for setting this up. This an easy trail with great views and the trails were decked with wildflowers - especially the 2nd mile. Trail is generally shaded meandering through pines and open meadows decked in flowers and great views from saddles...Both peaks do not have views (Flys seemed to be be a cow paddock!) but it was a destination none-the-less. The beauty of this trail is the journey. The fire damamge is present but nolonger really detracts from the views -- it has made for opening that are full of color! Well marked trails and clear of tree falls makes for a quick pace but watch out for gopher holes that lurk underfoot! The rasberries were out and pickings sweet! Return saw us lolly gag over the views and the flowers and watching thunderstorms drench far away peaks ...they'd catch us later in the evening.

I think we saw some bear scat along the way but no wildlife sightings.
