Black Canyon Creek Trail is an exciting adventure along narrow roads with outstanding scenic views. However, this trail will challenge anyone's confidence with long, steep, rocky ascents, intimidating washouts, and seriously off-camber shelf roads. The thick brush lining the trail will leave pinstriping in your vehicle's paint.
This trail is best to be driven when dry. Slippery conditions make washouts extremely dangerous. This trail is not for the novice driver or anyone who fears steep, narrow shelf roads. The trail is best suited for narrow, high clearance vehicles with skid plates, traction aid devices, and winches. Full-width vehicles should avoid this trail.
Route finding can be difficult, but the official trail only crosses Black Canyon Creek once. It then begins a short trek west before heading north. Three miles in, you must conquer loose, beachball-sized boulders. One mile later, the trail traverses the narrowest of the washouts.
At 1.3 miles from the trail's southern end are several great dispersed campsites along Black Canyon Creek.
Expect 3-4 hours to complete this trail.
