We all gathered around guide
Woody as the ridge trail splits. I'm not
sure which branch we took, but the GPS coordinates posted on the trail
map can be used to insure you make the right turn. Those coordinates
are down-loadable from the Black Mtn
trail page. As seen in these pictures, the terrain varied from
mostly very thick
undergrowth around the trail to open areas with very little undergrowth.
Other than some large fallen trees to climb over, the trail would
still at times close in on us as we would stop to take an occasional
rest to make sure others caught back up.
