Black Mountain Trail, California

   
I just camped over in Black Mountain.  Amazing place... I even got to see a Lynx pretty close up.  Calm and beautiful animal.  I highly recommend this place.  Not a bear or raccoon in the area.  You don't have to so much worry about having food in your car. Says Randy W

Black Mountain Trail is a two ended wilderness hiking trail with two trailheads, so backcountry backpacking it one way is an option if you can arrange for a ride back. Now this backcountry hiking trail is pretty long, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip. The time needed for this backcountry hike is roughly 5.5 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. Different parts of Black Mountain Trail are at very different elevations, so keep in mind that you may need to dress differently at different elevations. At parts of the year this region sees very little rain, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out. With its 6.4 miles of walking distance it's an average length backpacking and hiking trail. This wilderness hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 2,713 feet, and that is higher than average.
