For travelers along the Crest Trail, this trail is part of a system that leads to a number of interesting features including Flys Peak, Bear Wallow Spring, Tub Spring and scenic Centella Point.
This trail branches from the Crest Trail #270 along the stretch that lies between Flys Park and Round Park, just south of the Wilderness boundary. Flys Peak trail goes up and over the mountain's 9,666 foot summit from the junction where the Long Park, Crest, and Fly Peak Trails intersect. Along the way, it negotiates one of the steepest climbs in this part of the Chiricahuas. There is a good overlook a short distance south and west of the summit.
Motorized and mechanized vehicles and equipment, including mountain bikes, are not permitted in Wilderness Areas.
