Eight of us drove down to Black Canyon City today to ride the Black Canyon Trail. We were joined by my friends from Phoenix, Rick and Bryan.
It was a perfect day, and the desert was beautiful. We rode an out and back on the trail of a little over 7.4 miles one way. We had to cross the running Agua Fria twice. The trail is very narrow in parts and has a lot of up and down with some very tight corners and some pretty crazy exposure. It worked us (I guess I should speak for myself) pretty hard. In the almost 15 miles we had a total elevation gain of over 2000′.
