The Blackhawk Trail is for meat eaters—real carnivores who like their T-bones cooked rare. It’s bloody good! Those who prefer well-done, pre-fab burgers disguised with special sauce had best look elsewhere. Blackhawk is way off the beaten path, but those who make the effort to find it and follow it will score big. You’ll need strong legs and keen handling skills for the many hills and ever-changing trail conditions. A good sense of direction will help because more than half of the route is not shown on the USGS quadrangles. This loop is more a collection of pack trails than government-issue, multi-recreational paths. Equestrians have known about Blackhawk for years and have effectively kept it a secret. Tread: 14.5 miles of singletrack, 2 miles of pavement, 1 mile of gravel road.
