I would rate this trail more difficult than "moderate" for sure. Lots of wildlife - deer and birds. Came across four rattlesnakes on the trial. Also encountered a mountain lion near the top of the trail, only about 20 ft. off the path. Be aware if you are hiking with dogs or small children.

Nice hike with good view

Scenic and steep! I had to take a couple of rest breaks to enjoy the view lol! Saw lizards, deer, butterflies, and many different colored rocks.
As I was going up, met a couple, going down, who had their dogs with them. The two dogs were not on a leash. It appears that the dogs may have left a deposit on the trail. It was also a popular spot for flies.
Not a fun thing to deal with.
This is an awesome trail that makes you feel like you accomplished something just being there!
The tree shade keeps you cool most of the time. Bring water! Pace your hike, it's worth it!!

beautiful views all the way up. the trail is well defined but also a little rugged in spots to keep is interesting. it's worth noting my Garmin tracked it at just over 6 miles round trip. my hiking partners Fitbit tracked it at 6 as well

plan for about a 30 minute drive to the trailhead (starting when you enter Coronado). it's a pretty rough drive but my Chevy Cruze made it without much resistance.

definitely recommend

this is not a trail it is just an unimproved, rocky road. great for turning ankles.

I found the trail head, but the path was so overgrown I couldn't really tell if I was following a trail or just walking aimlessly into the desert...

One of my favorite hikes I’ve done and the weather was beautiful along with the endless views

Nice hike up and back. Great views all around. Only encountered 3 individuals on my way up and back. Of note is I was hot on the way up because I was protected from the wind. If you tend to sweat take a towel, extra shirt and maybe a windbreaker, after coming around to the windward side of the mountain it got pretty cool and windy.

Very nice, but tough trail! Right now it has some vegetation making parts of the trail hard to follow.

This is NOT a moderate hike - definitely strenuous with steep uphill grades, 20% at times. Especially if you continue on to Miller Peak. The trail is easy to follow though.The steepest part is the mile after the boiler up to the crest trail. On the positive side, it's definitely the most forested/shaded trail in the Huachucas. 12 miles up and back to the peak and 4,000 ft of elevation gain. The creek is running and so is tub springs.

Great views and had a lot of fun. Took my wife and I carrying our children in ospreys about 3.5 hours from the campground to the peak and back down. Total distance covered was just under 6 miles according to the garmin. Great time!!

10/10. Great trail.

Beautiful and everyone had a blast, except when the rain came in as soon as we hit the peak, so it was a little soggy coming down. no LTs died.

Read: Trailhead has a 5 mile steep dirt road leading up to it, don't think you can just drive up there with your economy rental vehicle! We went during monsoon season, so we parked our dinky car at the parking lot at the bottom of the canyon to avoid unexpectedly getting stuck up at the campgrounds. It took us 2 hours to reach the trailhead with pictures. Beautiful views all throughout the hike! halfway to the trailhead is a lookout spot for a waterfall. Trail meets the moderate profile, other than the lack of oxygen, there was nothing too difficult. Be prepared to hike 16 miles if you don't have a truck/4x4 during monsoon season. Ran across about a dozen hikers on a Saturday so great if you're paranoid about an unexpected emergency. Sighted only one rattlesnake but didn't cause any problems. Theres an outhouse at the trailhead with no water point, be sure to bring enough food and water for the entire trip.

This was an awesome hike. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. There are 2 trail heads close to the terminus of a well managed dirt road which can be negotiated in a 2WD. We camped at Reef Townsite all weekend, enduring heavy bouts of rain, and the road was just as good going down.

We started out about 11:30 AM from the Reef Townsite trailhead (Sawmill Springs Trail) and shortly encountered the main Carr Trail, about 3/4 mile in. This way in brings you by the spring, which provides ice cold water good for soaking hats and neckerchiefs. Came across a few parties going up, but saw nobody on the way down. I expected more people given the proximity to the town of Sierra Vista, but it was pretty rainy this day.

The scenery is fantastic and the landscape changes quickly. The trail is at times thin and rocky, and then opens into glades and meadows then thickets. At one point there is a beautiful aspen grove which sings in the wind. About a half mile from the peak, the clouds rolled in on us. It was amazing, even though the thunder was ominous. We were enveloped in a cool mist which soon broke into a good steady rain. We were drenched!

We made the summit in patchy rain and scattered clouds. It was about 55 degrees, and every plant was swarming with mating ladybugs. There was nobody behind us, and so we had the summit to ourselves. Very cool experience. Everyone in our group loved it, dogs included.

Took on Miller Canyon last week. It was definitely tougher than I thought. couldn't get to the last 2 miles due to weather that moved in. But 8 miles total for the round trip was plenty. Great trail with tons of steady elevation through out, nice vegetation and well tended trail way. Recommend if you get a very early start during monsoon (July/August), otherwise afternoon weather will interrupt your hike.

Went on a cool day with lots of cloud coverage and it was perfect. The views are incredible and it wasn't too hard of a hike, I'm sure on a hot day it would have been a lot harder. I'm definitely coming back soon

Nice hike although at 60 years old I was breathing heavily at several times. (which is good)
The Trail itself is quite Rocky with very few spots with no rocks.

The drive up to the starting spot is 30 minutes so put that in your schedule.

We did the entire hike in 3 hours.

Great trail. Remember to pay the day use fee at the trail head.

We did this hike a few years ago. Nice canyon. I think we saw one other person that day that was it. I have hiked over here quite a bit, but had never taken this trail. We were trying for Miller peak, but when we got to the crest trail at the top of Miller Canyon, the wind was ridiculous. Again, to many nice days to hike than have to tolerate that kind of wind. There were some sketchy spots of snow along the trail beyond too that we didn't feel like sliding down. So we turned around and headed back down. Good trail up through the canyon though.

I've been to the top of Miller several times. I actually stayed overnight once when the fire lookout cabin was still there. That was pretty cool. This was my wife's first time up. We did it from the top of the Carr Canyon road which helps cut off some elevation, but lengthens the hike. That's actually where I have done it from before each time too. The first stretch of trail out of the car park area is really rocky. So when you return from the hike, this section is something you wish wasn't there. There are many sections of burned forest along this trail. It's a shame as it was a beautiful forest many years ago. The views are much better of course, but sad that the forest burned. When you get to the cut off to Carr Peak, the trail becomes fairly easy as it skirts around the south face of Carr Peak and descends slowly to another trail junction. Here the trail joins the Arizona National Scenic Trail for the rest of the way to Miller Peak. There is also a trail that goes down Miller Canyon. From here the trail is pretty easy as well as it follows a crest. Once at the base of Miller Peak, it is a pretty good climb to get to the top. With the fire lookout no longer there, it looks a lot different on top. Excellent views all around though. We did this in late May of 2015 and the lady bugs were all over the peak like they usually are. It is a long day for sure, so one needs to leave fairly early. Feet will be sore by the time you get back :)

No marked trail heads only primitive road

This is a great trail to hike in December. I only made it 3/4 of the way before it started to get dark I had to turn around. The temperature also was noticeably cooler as I went up the mountain. Come prepared with a fleece!

Nice hike. The weather can be 100% different at summit so prepare accordingly.

Awesome trail. There were a couple spots that were steep but worth the scenery at the top.

on Carr Peak Trail

Trail was a little overgrown, but still easy to follow. Great views from the top. I will definitely do this one again in the fall.
