A short off road loop trail over a ridge in the Mohave County Arizona Black Mountains with great views of Lake Mohave, Laughlin, Nevada and Mohave Lakeview Ranchos.

The Black Mountains of northwest Arizona are an extensive, mostly linear, north-south trending 75 miles long mountain range. It forms the north-south border of southwest Mohave County as it borders the eastern shore of the south-flowing Colorado River from Hoover Dam.

The northwest and part of the western areas of the range are located within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Three wilderness areas are within the range. The historic mining site of Oatman, 4 miles north of Boundary Cone, is nestled in the southern portion of the range between the Mount Nutt and Warm Springs wildernesses.

Lake Mohave on the Arizona/Nevada is amazing with 240 miles of shoreline, spreading 67 miles from end to end, with Cottonwood Cove Resort & Marina located right in the center. It begins at Davis Dam in Bullhead City, Arizona and is just 14 miles east of historic Searchlight, Nevada, only 45 minutes north of Laughlin and an hour south of Las Vegas.
