View Black Canyon Trail in a larger map
The Black Canyon Trail is a 62 mile desert ride that stretches from the Carefree Highway up to the Prescott National Forest, skirting the base of the Bradshaw Mountains and running parallel to Interstate 17.
The Black Canyon Trail Coalition keeps the trails alive and well through trail building and maintenance activities. To lend a hand visit the trail work events page for info and dates. See the maps section for official topos and visit Dale’s website for really good topos (see below)

I finally rode a small portion of the BCT. Awesome!
