The Black Trail

A good trail to get on top quick. The east trailhead is located behind the swimming pool showers. The first mile will go up about 600 feet and allow a good view of the canyon, including the top of Forbidden Mountain. The next half-mile takes you up about 500 more feet to Whiskey Bottle Tank. The tank is an ideal overnight spot complete with a view of base camp, sunset/sunrise, and great stars. Don’t miss the opportunity of taking the Red Trail to Tinaja (about 25 minutes round trip from the tank). The west descent is just past Tricky Gap and is a good mile and a half down into Tricky Gap Park. Both sides are steep and rocky. Good knees, ankles, and boots are a must.
