Thanks to the efforts of local mountain bike advocates, the mountain bike community can now enjoy this previously off-limits area. Located in Montgomery County, Black Hill has a great network of singletrack that is bound to put a smile on off-road cyclist's face. Without serious changes in elevation but with plenty of twists and turns, these trails will delight the casual rider as well as the more advanced mountain bike enthusiast time and time again.

A nice little beginner trail. Not marked super well which made following the guide a little challenging at points. My friend went with me who has never mountain biked and had no problems. One climb that was a little rough cardiovascularly. I went on a nice Saturday afternoon and there were a ton of hikers on sections of the trail, but the trails are wide where most of the hikers were and easy to pass.

This is a pretty solid ride. Its honestly not all that technical and the "single track" is more like a single and a half track. LOTS of families and dog walkers on the trail giving you dirty look even if you are perfectly behaved. All and all its definitely worth the trip - just don't expect something spectacular.
