You can find more information about the Black Mountain Lookout Tower and Trail on the Forest Service website. There’s a trail map on Alltrails, here, that shows just where to go for the trek to the top. There’s limited parking at the trailhead, so carpool if you’re arriving with friends, and try to get there early enough to snag a spot.
