The Black Mountain Trail

Route: Black Mountain Trail

Trail was generally dry with occasional ice up to perhaps 2,500 feet, then a dusting of snow with occasional ice. Ice patches were generally small and at no time did I need traction. Ground is frozen in the higher elevations, but it didn't feel like a deep freeze yet.
