Overview: Carnero Creek is a beautiful spring fed alpine stream located within the Apache National Forest (White Mountains). This unique and seldom visited destination involves a short off-trail hike along Carnero Creek, down into a secluded hidden meadow. The hike ends at stunning boulder filled gorge. Truly a hidden gem.
