Route: Carr Mountain Trail, (Carr Mountain), Carr Mountain Trail, Waternomee Falls Spur Trail, Carr Mountain Trail

The Carr Mountain Trail was fairly bland and certainly not heavily travelled. The views from the summit ledges and fire tower footings were decent, though continuing to grow in.

The Waternomee Falls Spur was very vague after crossing a smaller cascade. The falls were fairly small, but still running during this dry spell.
