A steady climb that connects White Carin to Black Carin.

Description

This singletrack switches back and forth up a hill on the Black Carin side - thus the name. Once you've conquered the winding climb, the trail then follows along the side of the hill and wraps around to tie you into White Cairn. The trail is mostly exposed and passes through one mildly rocky section about halfway.
