Description

This doubletrack has 1,000 feet of climbing up through a wash. It gets steep near the top.

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.
