The Black Cloud Trail is easy to follow. At the turnoff listed in the Roach guidebook (39.0823, -106.4364) for the trail to Fidelity Mine I couldn't locate any trail and just bushwhacked west through the forest until I hit an open drainage, then went up the drainage until the trail appeared to my right on the hillside. The trail is overgrown and faint. It's not necessary to find it, just go up the drainage if need be. Above treeline the ridge becomes rocky and progress slows, but it's all easy, if long, and goes at Class 2. I continued on to Elbert from here.
