Low Mountain Lookout Loop

Trail Description

Sponsor:

The Low Mountain Lookout Loop is a ride on the Tri-State ATV Jamboree. It starts off the Black Rock exit of I-15 near the Utah / Arizona border and heads south and west through Little Purgatory Canyon and climbing to the Black Rock Mountain.

The jamboree ride actually takes you around Low Mountain, rather than on it, but if you're riding on your own there is a side trail that will take you down onto Low Mountain and past the Low Mountain Reservoir (which is only about 50 feet across when it has water in it).

Up on top is a great forest of Ponderosa pines, part of which were destroyed by a fire a few years ago. At the time of the jamboree (in March) it is common to be in the snow up here.

Depending on the time of year you may be able to ride out to a fire lookout that provides a stunning view of the surrounding area from about 7,300 feet.

Then you head past Maple Reservoir (again, very small) and down Maple Canyon, through Black Rock Gulch, and meet up with your incoming trail near The Dives.

This was a great ride. The views were outstanding. I am going to take my wife on this ride this spring as it is easy enough for her and she will enjoy the views.
 
It takes about 4 1/2 hours including lunch.
