The Black Mountain trail is 1.3 miles long. It begins at Icehouse Cove (near Carroll Pt.) and ends at Snag Lake (at Waters Edge). The trail is very scenic, passing through muskegs and ending at a beautiful pond. The trail begins at saltwater and rises in short, fairly steep pitches. The tread is in poor shape over most of the length, with many wet spots and rough stretches with many small roots. A mooring buoy is provided for access.

Directions: Access is by boat to Icehouse Cove, just south of Carroll Point, 8 miles from Ketchikan or 2 miles from the Mountain Point boat ramp. Extreme caution should be exercised upon entering Icehouse Cove because of the submerged rocks.
