Well graded trail led up to some interesting "cement" stairs that led to where a lookout once stood. We had a nice day but it did turn hot as we got close to the trailhead. Stewart Campground has 6 nice spots and seems to be pretty popular with bird watchers.
I only had one day to hike in the range since we were on our way back to New Mexico from a California road trip. So I decided to hike Silver Peak instead of Chiricahua per Weeds recco. It was a perfect day on the mountain. Perfectly still air, perfect temp, and great views. The 3,000 vertical gain/loss was a bit rough on me, but well worth it.
