Ascent Trip Report

This was an out and back day hike starting and ending at Sycamore Campground to climb South Flys Peak, Flys Peak, Chiricahua Peak and Snowshed peak. The lower trail shown on the topo map between spot elevation 8767 and Cima Park is completely gone; we gave up on it after about 1/4 mile and went cross country up to Junction Saddle. Further, the trail shown on the north side of Peak 9660 that goes out to Snowshed Peak is also completely gone, requiring us to bushwhack about 1/2 mile to meet up with the trail that skirts around the south side of Peak 9660; we took this trail on the way back to Chiricahua Saddle. Trip stats include ascents of all four peaks.
