Trail Overview

Black Rock Canyon is a moderate trail that starts off on soft sand and quickly becomes a compact dirt trail with rocks. You are welcomed with gorgeous vistas of the red rock cliffs and even drive right beside volcanic rocks that you can explore. As you reach the middle of the trail, your view opens up to the canyon and valleys all over the park, making this place a beautiful location to explore. Make your way deeper into the trail, and you drive right beside sheer cliffs that look like something out of a movie. Although the majority of the trail is fairly easy, the end is where the real fun begins as you have to carefully climb the black rock hill and navigate your way through a very rocky section that will get anybody's blood pumping.
