Black Mountain, located in the Clearwater National Forest, is the highest point in the Mallard Larkins Pioneer Area, a defacto wilderness. The peak had a fire lookout placed on its summit in 1932 and, as far as I know, it is still in use.The peak can be climbed via a trail from the North Fork Clearwater River. The trail is steep and gains roughly 5,500 feet in 8 miles. Class 1. USGS Mallard Creek
