Black Mountain—South Slope Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Black Mountain’s triangular profile is a familiar sight to residents of Rancho Penasquitos, Mira Mesa, Sabre Springs, Carmel Mountain Ranch, and Rancho Bernardo. The cluster of microwave antennas at its apex testifies to the mountain’s importance in line-of-sight electronic communication, and suggests how inclusive a view you can get from the summit area on a clear day. Several hiking routes converge on Black Mountain’s summit, but this south-side approach is perhaps the most simple and scenic to boot."
