BM6258 is located 19 miles north of Barstow in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Black Mountain Subregion. Beginning on the west side of the lava flow that makes up the steep walls of Black Canyon, BM6258 has beautiful mineral-colored geology and challenging trail sections to navigate.

The trail's eastern section that connects to Black Canyon Road has been washed out, leaving a rough, deep, narrow trench with shear sides causing high vehicle off-camber. It requires an experienced offroad driver in a high clearance four-wheel drive vehicle.

The 1.8-mile-long BM6258 is a connector to several other trails and, at its beginning, connects to BM6251, which loops back to the beginning of Black Canyon.

There are no dispersed campsites visible from the trail, but the entire trail is on BLM land, and several suitable sites can be found that provide flat, cleared areas to set up camp and have a campfire when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines.

During high fire danger, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp here, one should review the current Campire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.
