Overview: This completely off-trail, out & back hike first follows a use route/fire suppression break, then traverses a rather steep, loose-rocky middle section prior to gaining the summit of this "mesa top" Carr Mountain at 7630 feet (also a Summits on the Air- SOTA peak #W7A/GI-001).

Warning: This Sierra Ancha Mountains summit and perimeter has very few locations for viewing scenic distant areas with a large portion of the mesa top, north, and west sections being very prone to fire-lighting strikes. It is not recommended to do this hike during the Arizona Monsoon Season months of late June, July, and August.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
