The Carhart trail is located in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area of the White River National Forest east of Meeker, Colorado. Named for Arthur Carhart, who surveyed Trappers Lake in 1919 and recommended it for preservation, the trail makes a loop that takes it all the way around Trappers Lake. Enroute it has connections with the Wall Lake, Trappers Lake and Little Trappers Lake trails.
