California Caviar Dreamland
Black Point Hill is the local exercise hike, lightly used by Blythe citizens. Since there are no trails to the tops of mountains around Blythe, locals walk a dirt service road up this hill. There are microwave towers on top of the hill. From the summit, there are great views of the Colorado River, its huge farming valley framed by desert peaks, and the Big Maria Mountains Wilderness, which lies just to the northwest.
On the left, partway up, is the Black Point Intaglio, an ancient geoglyph (or very large petroglyph on the ground), protected by law. You really can't see what it looks like except from an aerial photo. The area is fenced and marked by a sign saying it's an archaeological site. It's okay to walk around in the area as long as you do not damage or remove anything.
The actual summit of the hill is uncluttered and makes a nice rest stop with a view. Return the way you came.
