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.
