Description

This hike option follows Miller Canyon Trail #106 to Carr Peak Trail #107 to reach the summit of Carr Peak. It follows Miller Canyon up to the ridge of the Huachuca Mountains then quickly reaches Carr Peak.

While in the canyon, you are kept cool in the shade, following along a stream, and you'll catch small windows highlighting great vistas.

Upon reaching the ridge, you are greeted with stunning vistas all around during your quick climb to the summit along the Carr Peak Spur Trail #108. Once you are done enjoying the views, head back the way you came.
