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.
