The lower Black Mountain Trail
Route: Black Mountain Trail
Black Mountain in Benton.
Trail was mostly dry and in good shape. Some minor black ice in a few places. One area of blue ice a few tenths below the summit, but easily bypassed. No need for traction until the next precip event. Slight dusting of snow up high.
For White Mountain standards, this trail has quite good footing virtually the whole way.
