“A scenic tour of the Chupadera Mountains combined with technical singletrack.”— Rob Selina
The Chupadera Crossing Jeep Trail mostly consists of unimproved access roads to abandoned mines. The Black Canyon Trail starts out as technical singletrack followed by an arroyo where you pick your own route. Some bushwhacking and way-finding should be expected.
After the summit, the descent is fast and loose. Watch your speed since pinch flats and sidewall tears are common on this section of trail.
As you loop around to Black Canyon Trail, the Black Canyon Mine, Mancy Mine, and Grand Canyon Mine are visible on your left.
The Black Canyon Trail starts out as technical singletrack. It is primarily a hiking trail to access the nearby bouldering problems and sport climbing routes, so please be courteous to climbers in the area and give them right of way. The trail ends in the Black Canyon Arroyo, which must be traversed for approximately 0.25 miles before a singletrack is visible on the left connecting to another two-track mining road. Expect unimproved and technical terrain.
