Hero: Black Cat Pass
small-sr Icon

Black Cat Pass runs between Highways 60 and 72 near the tiny hamlet of Hope. The scenic trail has three wash crossings and roughly parallels a seldom-used railroad track. There are gates at both ends. Close them after passing through. Cattle graze in the area. The trail passes massive ocotillo and thick cholla cactus gardens. Several large flat campsites on the northwestern end of the trail are suitable for larger rigs or several smaller ones.
