Ascent Trip Report

This was a great after-work evening hike, and a great way to tire out two dogs. We parked at Hilltop Park and took the Little Black Loop to the small secondary peak on the way up. Parts of the trail are rather steep and rocky for dog feet, but it was a short overall hike, so it didn't slow us down too much. Time from trailhead to Black Mountain summit was just under 50min including Little Black Mountain. Time down was about 30min via the Night Hawk trail.
