Comments
Comments: Trails are in good condition, but expect streams going down the middle of the trail. On Carter-Moriah I stepped in mud where I sank up to one knee, and then the other (> 2' deep). On the way back, we ran into another hiker that sank just as deep in the exact same spot. If you look carefully, it is avoidable, but not obvious.

It is a bit steeper, but the northern Imp trail goes by Imp Face, which has excellent views. The Middle Carter summit is marked by a nonobvious small cairn and has no view, but a few minutes down affords some good lunch spots with beautiful views.
