The East Rim Trail is an off shoot of the Manzanita Loop. The trail is narrow steep single track. From the bottom of the ERT to the Miners Ridge Loop you get dumped into a new development where I had to search for the trail. Once I found it it was good climb back up Black Mountain. I started at Hill Top Park and followed signs for Manzanita Loop and East Rim Trail from the Night Hawk Trail.
