The pups and I started up Black Mountain around 4:15am. It was a real nice hike up. We took an extended break on top and talked with another hiker. We all hiked down together and talked about trails we both have done. I had planned on doing a loop from this trailhead to the slate trail in the Cave Creek park and back. On a couple of maps, the slate trail is shown leaving Cave Creek park and ending on Surrey Drive. There is even TrailHead parking on Surrey Drive. On my way back I had notice this portion of the trail is closed. I must of missed the sign that closed this trail. It looks like its going to be developed soon. There where lot numbers along the road. At Cave creek wash, there where private property signs. I decided against trying to loop around, and I headed back the way I came. It was starting to get hot, and our water supply was going fast. We drank over a gallon of water.... Im glad I stopped by the truck to refill after doing Black Mountain.
