Description

This trail is typically ridden from west to east. Start at the trailhead for the Unbeatable boulder, in the southern part of the Box Canyon climbing area.

The trail starts out as rocky singletrack and eventually joins the Black Canyon Arroyo. Singletrack meanders across the arroyo and eventually disappears. Follow the arroyo to the east and look for an exit to a two-track on the north.

Note - this trail is rustic and the arroyo is unimproved. Expect slow, techy riding and some bushwhacking in the arroyo. Riding north on to the Highway is an appreciably easier loop, but Black Canyon provides an alternative for diehards who prefer to stay on dirt.

This trail should be removed from MTBP. The first Mars mission will have a more defined trail trail than the black arroyo. How 2 give negative stars?
