he Black Oak trail loop on Middle Peak was formally off-limits to mountain bikes, but the summer before the fires, local advocates were able to get this trail opened to mountain bikers. The Black Oak trail meets up with Middle Peak fire road twice on it's loop. Take the second Black Oak turnoff for the longest distance on this particularly nice singletrack.
