Trail Description
About this trail
http://www.mc-mncppc.org/trails/trails_maps/trailmap_pdfs/black_hill_trails.pdf

The 4.3-mile Black Hill Trail is asphalt surface for most of its length, but the mid-section of the
trail (6-mile RT) is natural surface and is steep and rocky in sections. The rest of the trails in the
park are natural surface. There are several trailheads from different parking lots around the
park. Use the .pdf map to see where the trails lead. I would rate this as intermediate b/c of the
rocks and roots in certain sections of the Hardrock Trail. VERY FUN RIDE!

Black Hill West is a fast flow trail addition to the original singletrack trails

Review: Rode here in the fall. The trails in the main area of the park (east of Clarksburg Rd) are mostly beginner friendly. There are some sections with rocks and some short climbs but nothing technical. It's probably a blast to ride at speed which I had to keep in check with wet leaves littering the trail. The Ten Mile Creek section on the west side of Clarksburg Rd is fun flowy singletrack (separate review).

Review: Rode the Ten Mile Creek Trail. Nice fast flowy trail with great views of the lake. Similar to Allegrippis in PA.

Review: Not quite as awesome as Schaffer but still tons of fun to be had. Certainly less mountain bike traffic. Love that you can link the two systems if you're up for an epic.

Review: Did a quick lap around Hard Rock, Cabin Branch and Hamilton Trail and while they are not long on the miles, the park is quite fun. Hard Rock is full of just that, HARD ROCKS! I kicked up at least 3 into my shins. Cabin Branch and Hamilton wind their way along the hills in the area and are quite fun. Overall, a great place for beginner or intermediate level riders, or head up Hoyles Mill from Schaeffer and tack on a bunch of extra miles to your day out. Black Hills is definitely worth it.

Review: rode this last summer. There is now a new paved black hill trail but the unpaved trail still exists. Only did a little of the old trail.

Review: This is the second ride of the season for me. It was nice and dry already. It had some climbs and rocks, but nothing very technical. The paths have been cleaned nicely for hikers and horse-riding, so do not expect any jumps or logs to hop. Overall, it is a nice, quick ride. The best thing about it is that there are so many trails you can make it into as long or short of a ride as you would like.

Review: a fun ride - make sure that you don't get off the trail onto the paved path that goes around senecca lake. i definitely recommend the hard rock trail and field crest spur, although stay away when wet, because other than the usual responsible mountain biker reasons, they can get and stay really muddy under all the tree cover and just not be fun.
