Starting Up The Trail
Overlook Virtual Pano

You can see by the map that within the first mile after starting you get into a lot of switchbacks.  On the return, it seemed like they would never end.

Black Mountain Trail begins at .8 miles from the start. We had quite a large group ranging from young to yours truly old :-)

Continuing on along Black Mtn Trail there are few places with a good view.  This spot offered a glimpse of the surrounding mountains as well as a good spot to rest. There are not many really good resting places, so take advantage of them while you can.
