The trailhead is on the right - look for the bulletin board. Proceed forward and park in the large pullout on the left. The trail is one of three routes to Black Ridge Trail. It also serves to connect Black Ridge Trail with Monument Canyon Trail. The trail ascends to the junction with Black Ridge." There is camping available at the Saddlehorn Campground which is located near the Visitor Center, about four miles from the west entrance.
