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.

    To hike
    From Safford, head south on U.S. highway 191. Turn west onto state highway 366 (a.k.a. Swift Trail). Follow highway 366 (which later turns into forest road 803) approximately 33.5 miles to its very end at the unsigned Clark Peak Trailhead (stay right at turnoff for Riggs Lake). Follow the Clark Peak Trail #301 for about 1.5 miles to the signed (as of November 2007) junction with the Carter-Nuttall Trail #315, in a saddle below the west side of Clark Peak.
