Black River Road, named for the wild mountain waterway it crosses, traverses beautiful forests and areas burned by the devastating Wallow Fire of 2011. The roadway is generally well-maintained but has a whole lot of curves, switchbacks, climbs and descents, and shelf roads. A long narrow bridge spans the Black River at the bottom of its steep-walled canyon. The river is a favorite with anglers looking for wily trout. The bridge has a pullout suitable for three camping vehicles. There's also plenty of large disposed campsites along the trail, often used by hunters in the Fall.
