Owl Creek Trail (#820A)

This short and primitive trail provides access to Black Canyon Trail #820 a little earlier and later in the year than the higher elevation Black Canyon West Trailhead. Black Canyon Trail #820 enters Black Canyon Wilderness where wilderness regulations apply.

Forest Service Road 5810 is also more suitable for use by passenger vehicles and trailers than Forest Service Road 5840 to Black Canyon West (formerly Dusty Camp) Trailhead.
