Mileage and elevation gain estimated because I stupidly forgot to turn on my GPS, or accidentally turned it off. Rough off-trail hiking. Can be very steep, with loose shale. Great views of Thumb Butte. I believe it can be climbed only with hardware and ropes. (This is the very prominent "finger" you see when driving between Bullhead and Golden Valley on Highway 68.) Saw some burros. Saw plenty of evidence of bighorns, but no sightings. I'm told they are pretty commonly seen in the area.

The Black Mountains range is a lot longer than most of the local ranges, and there are seemingly endless opportunities for exploration. Lots of Jeep roads to access it. I will link to Mount Nutt Wilderness, although we didn't quite reach the wilderness boundary.
