The Blackhawk Trail is a narrow singletrack that twists through aspen and pine along the top of the Nebo Loop in Payson Canyon. Almost unknown, this trail is among the nicest alpine rides in the state. The Nebo Loop is famous for its beautiful trees and mountain vistas -- especially in late September to early October when the red maples and golden aspens draw Sunday-afternoon gawkers from around the state. Elevation is 8000 feet.
The trail is best in the fall. Snow clears in mid-June, but the many sections stay wet with springs and bogs until late summer. Most of the creeks that cross the trial have a solid base, but if you see deep horse hoof prints, you'd better bail and walk.
