Carr Peak Professional Review and Guide
"A hike to a 9,000-foot summit in the Miller Peak Wilderness in the Huachuca Mountains. The Carr Peak Trail heads southeast up a gentle ridge through the 1977 Carr Peak burn. After you pass through a stand of surviving tall timber, the trail steepens as it switchbacks up the north ridge of Carr Peak. The fine, unlimited views are a bit of compensation for the burned forest. On the north side of the peak, the trail passes through thick stands of quaking aspen, and then swings around to the south slopes. Here the forest survived the fire."
--Stewart Aitchison & Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Arizona (Falcon Guides).
This trail is relatively short, but very beautiful and rewarding. The round trip took roughly 4 hours, and provided breathtaking views of the Huachuca mountains and surrounding areas. My only complaint is that I did not have enough time to continue on to the adjoining trail to Miller Peak. I will have to get out there again!
