Trail Overview
Black Canyon City Overlook
This is a fun area for unlicensed vehicles to explore. If you want to camp, KOA offers direct access to the trail. Roads south of the trail will descend into Moore Gulch, where you can then take a road under I-17 to connect to the Table Mesa Area trail system.
Getting There
Get off I-17 at Exit 242 about 25 miles north of Phoenix. Go to east side of exit and follow frontage road north less than 0.2 miles (before turn to KOA). Look for barbed wire gate on right. Close gate after passing through.
