“The recommended route from Black Canyon Road to Poleta Canyon.”— Rick Ianniello
From the bottom of the Black Canyon Trail, head up Black Canyon Road a short distance. Keep right at any intersections until you come up to a pass, then take the next left to traverse north to a flat area with a three-way intersection.
Make a left at this intersection, and then take a right at another three-way intersection immediately afterward to reach Poleta Canyon.
