Trail Overview

For those who take the road less traveled, this is the one to the Black Mountain Tower site. This is a great challenge for SXS, motorcycle, ATV, and modified 4x4(not stock for sure). The trail will connect with the Black Mountain Tower site road, which you can go up and have a break with a view. It is a very bumpy, rocky, steep in many areas trail which you'll be in 4LO till you connect back up with the main road to the towers.
