Black Canyon Trail

80 miles of trail that's open to hikers, bikers and equestrians..stretches north from Carefree Highway near Phoenix to past Mayer.

There are trail heads at Black Canyon City, Bumble Bee and Cordes Junction exits.
It was used for travel by Native Americans, then a stage road and by ranchers to move livestock.  It was established as a livestock driveway in 1919 to move sheep to the north country.  It is still used by one family.
