A scenic trail along the ridges above the Carp River.

Leslie Kehmeier

Features Waterfall

Description

Carp Eh Diem is a scenic trail along the ridges above the Carp River. It's similar to Gorge-ous but has less exposure and a wider tread.

The route starts on the west side of the highway across from the main South Trails parking area and rolls out on the contour on somewhat smooth trail. After crossing a bridge and passing multiple intersections with various downhill routes, Carp Eh Diem gently climbs and contours around some small ridges above the Carp River.

Midway through, the trail starts a twisting descent to a bench above the river near Morgan Creek Falls. From here the route begins a climb out of the drainage with a quick steep pitch at first and then more moderately to an intersection with the Green Loop and Pipe Dreams.

For a shorter loop run Pipe Dreams to Off Grade back to the main parking area. For a longer route, connect into the Green Loop or Red Loop.
