Black Rock Mountain
The hike up Black Rock Mountain was more interesting than I expected, enjoyable and changing scenery throughout. Wayne, Dinah and I followed a good trail all the way to the summit. On the way down, we left the trail to explore some cliffs below the plateau. The only difficulty for this trip was getting to the trailhead. A 4WD vehicle is a must!

Looking southwest as we approached the summit. Phantom Craig appears in the middle.
The lookout was built in 1928 and is no longer in use
On the way down we left the trail and explored some interesting rocks
