Description: 
Black Canyon City Overlook is a moderate 7 mile spur trail.  It is  Trail #37 on the Funtreks site.  The trail follows Moore Gulch, then climbs along a high scenic ridge to a remote overlook of Black Canyon City which provides great panoramic night views, and we will also have a 'Hunter's' full moon.  Deviating from the Funtreks route, we will start from the south side of the Table Mesa road exit and navigate switchbacks to traverse a ridge before joining the main trail.  The narrow and winding trail is generally easy with a few moderate spots.  Wildlife viewing opportunities have been abundant on this trail in previous years.  This is a long trail, hence the early start time.  We will be stopping on State Trust land, so get your permit  here if you don't already have a current one. 


Requirements:
- Driver experience with moderate trails
- 4x4 with low range, aggressive MT or AT tires (32"+), skid plates, and recovery points front & rear
- Rig must be road-legal with all necessary safety equipment, current registration & insurance, etc.
- Flashlight with backup light source

- Bring water and a meal / snacks for you and your passengers - the plan is to eat when we reach the overlook

- Over-sized tires (33"+)
