Installing Hard wood in hallway with stairs

I am installing hardwood in a hallway with a 3 sets of stairs (2 going down and 1 going up)

It is solid hardwood with matching stair nosing.
I am wondering about matching up with the stair nosing on each side

Should I start on one side and the cut wood and then router in a new groove on side going downstairs?
What is the recomended way to match up against the carpeted stairs?

I am wondering what would be the best way to do this install or any handy hints anyone may have?
