Overview
This is a short connector "trail" (an old forest road) used to access the Carr Lake Loop #412.


The only purpose of this trail is to provide a designated connector. It's a nice way to access the loop for those using the Apache Sitgreaves FR9350 Dispersed camping area (42 campsites, first come, first served).

Many will park at the eastern side of this trail at the intersection of FR9350 and FR9350B (driving to here is still legal.)

Hike
The Carr Connector Trail #414 is a quarter-mile portion of an old forest road (FR9350) that is now closed to motorized vehicle travel (except for snowmobiles, which interestingly enough, are allowed on this trail). Due to the 2007 Promontory Fire and forest clearing, there is little shade except for a few isolated pine trees.

Unfortunately, the same forest clearing currently has made a mess of the surrounding, which is not that interesting to look at as it is a mess of bark and tree remnants, along with mud from the loggers tearing up the ground in the area.

The trail ends at the Carr Lake Loop trail (where it leaves this road and proceeds north onto FR9350C.)

    To hike
    From Payson, take highway 260 east to Rim Road. Turn onto the rim road and proceed west about 5.5 miles; turn left (south) off the rim road at FR9350 (this leads to the Carr Trailhead). Rather than turn into the trailhead, continue along FR9350 along the rim for another few miles, passing the 42 dispersed campsites along FR9350. At the last site (#42), you reach the intersection with FR9350B. There is adequate parking here for a few vehicles.
