Black mountain in Ramona, not Carmel Valley. Route follows Forest Service road 11504. Real bummer that a thruway for an epic loop is blocked at the top by a private in-holding...oh well, enjoy the out-and-back. Typical out-and-back fire road climb. Great views. Two steep sections, but really not that bad for most of the journey. A little rocky towards the top. Watch for 4x4's and motorcycles.
