Basically a clear cutting trail which would be more fun in a 4x4 than hiking. No picturesque view and poor markings. The first part is part of a loop before splitting to the left - 12km. Not hiking into the wood - at least most of it didn't feel that way.

The west end of this trail from Maloon Road to the Summit of Black Mountain is actually the Black Mountain Ski Trail. The East Pasture Trail ends at the junction of the Black Mountain Ski Trail and the Summit Spur.
The first 1.3 miles is a steady climb up a wide ski trail which ends at the cabin. The trail then continues less steeply to the left of the cabin for another 0.4 miles where it meets the East Pasture trail at the spur to the summit. The summit has a couple of restricted views toward Carter Dome and Mount Height and another toward South Baldface. A loop can be made by following the East Pasture Trail somewhat steeply downhill for 0.1 mile to Black Mountain Cutoff which climbs slightly to a height of land and then descends gradually through very pretty woods back to the cabin.
