North of Barstow and starting very near Inscription Canyon, Black Mountain 7470 travels east three miles through the wide and flat Superior Valley.

This straight-through crosses other BLM roads in the valley and ends at the Ft Irwin fenced border.

Black Mountain 7470 is an easy two-track road that requires only a two-wheel drive high clearance vehicle. A beginning offroad driver would enjoy this trail.

The area around the trail is a checkerboard of private, West Mojave Ecological Reserve, and public Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. When on BLM land numerous locations along the trail will make good dispersed campsites 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 Campfire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.
