is how you get from Table Mesa to BCC without using I-17... except backwards. It's not too difficult with the exception of one short gnarly little hill climb up out of the creek.

I've found two different ways and there is rumor of a third but I've not explored it yet. This one would probably take the longest as it is 4.8 miles longer than taking the direct route via Interstate but so far, it is my favorite.
To reach the start of the trail, from the intersection of Maggie Mine road and Old Black Canyon Highway,
Depart S Coldwater Rd toward S Summit Dr
0.9 miBear left onto E Squaw Valley Rd
Turn left onto S Melanie Ln
0.1 miTurn right onto E Tara Springs Rd
Turn right just after the road turns from pavement to dirt. Don't turn too soon as it will just take you up somebodies driveway with a lot of barking dogs!
After a little wiggle to pass under I17...
Here is what the overall trail looks like from top to bottom...
According to MapSource, we spent 40 minutes enjoying this section of trail.
