Ascent Trip Report

Black Mtn crest trail. 14 miles.The first 6 or 7 miles were cake but then it just hit me. Amazing views. Pretty difficult terrain.

As for Mitchell its just an easy walk up the path, and the trailhead is in the parking lot near the picnic area. Note that the trail is called Deep Gap trail here.
