Carter-Nuttall Trail #315 is a 0.7 mile one way hike with 25 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 18 miles west-southwest of Safford Arizona. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. September and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.
Overview: This is an unmaintained and likely decommissioned old trail that connects with the Clark Peak Trail #301 in a saddle just west of Clark Peak, and descends into upper Nuttall Canyon. The Carter-Nuttall Trail may connect with Nuttall Ridge Trail #319 at Hells Hole Creek, but the exact length of the trail is unknown. Statistics listed are a guess. Upper section of the Carter-Nuttall Trail is in okay shape as of 11-2007. The lower end may be damaged from the 2004 Nuttall Fire, and would likely be very difficult to follow.
