The Black Dragon Wash Trail is a loop trail off Swasey’s Leap Trail, which connects to Buckhorn Wash Trail. The majority of the trail does not appear on any map as it runs through some very scenic but seldom traveled countryside. The main attractions of this trail are its two spurs, which branch off to dead-ends. Special Attractions: Provides an alternative return route from Swasey’s Leap; Scenic views from Jackass Benches; Varied scenery along a moderately difficult 4WD road; Little-used, mostly unmapped trail in the midst of many heavily used backcountry roads. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees.
