The 9-mile course is a combination of two-track, cow trail, and single track, on the multi-use Black Canyon Trail. The trail has sections up and down the beautiful Black Canyon. The canyon is rocky and very technical. It will require a true partnership between burro and humans. Please slow down and keep your partner safe. Passing opportunities are limited and we are sharing the trail with others. Please be kind, courteous, and friendly. We want to be good burro ambassadors.
