Following the 1977 Marble-Cone Fire, the US Forest Service abandoned the Black Cone Trail, which was quickly reclaimed by dense thickets of chaparral. The 1999 Kirk Complex Fires raged along most of the trail, exposing its residual tread. Soon volunteers from the Ventana Wilderness Alliance hiked the area to see whether it would be feasible to reestablish the trail. In cooperation with the USFS, volunteers removed brush and debris and regraded the trail.
