Originally a ski resort, the area was purchased by the state and made into an under-utilized recreation area. There are miles of fairly well-marked two-track trails winding up and down the hills. Some parts are moderate, while others are more steep. There are also two three-sided structures which won't keep you warm , but will allow you to wait out a rain shower. the area is excellent for cross-country skiing. I would recommend bringing along water and a compass for any ride. Be forewarned that there are ATV trails in the area too. They are not allowed on your trails, but I have seen some damage from a few who didn't stay on their own trail system. There is a bed and breakfast nearby, along with several rustic campgrounds. Have fun!

Not much more to say than whats already been stated. Its all two tracks and no single track. Long up hills and down hills.

They're all pretty much the same.

Summary:
I have never found any good riding at Black Mountain. If you are looking for some serious riding go to Boyne or shingle Mill Pathway. See the review of these trails for more info.

Summary:
This trail offers lots of possibilities for a workout. I like to combine the trails with a few miles of steep downhills on gravel roads. You can fly down Black Mountain Road! Beware of the steeper trails...
