Now this is how to spend an afternoon! Grand epic views, no bushwhacking, unspoiled, and remote. This rugged mesa could not have been hand placed in a better location. The views of the surrounding area are just awesome. The entire hike was special, however the true highlight of the day were the south/southeast Salt River Canyon Wilderness views from the outer southern point (see photo #11). The rugged cliff faces along the southern edge of Black Mesa are jaw dropping and really must be experienced in person to appreciate. I could spend an entire afternoon just sitting out there. Black Mesa rocks! There's just no other way put it.
Warning: FR3271 is very rough and rocky. Heavy duty off-road tires are highly recommended (LT rated) for reaching the trail head.
