Description

Black Mountain Lookout Road is an ATV Trail but is commonly used by runners, backpackers, day hikers, and mountain bikers who are trying to reach the trailhead. Many chose to use an ATV until it turns into the hiking trail in order to cut time getting up the summit. If you chose to start hiking at the ATV trail, you'll be hiking through thick lodgepole forest with plenty of wildflowers. You can't see much around you due to the thickness of the forest but once you reach the tree line the views are wonderful.
