The Black Forest Trail drops almost 700 feet in just under one mile that connects rock features that will appeal to connoisseurs of "get out and scout" style, fall-line trail.
The trail has two distinct halves: The Upper Black Forest begins at the summit and is rated Double Black Diamond. It is significantly more difficult than any other trail in the park. Expect steep fall lines, rugged, unpredictable sections with drops, rock faces, and jumps. Take your time the first time down to scout lines. Numerous line choices exist and are not marked.
The lower section called "Stone Soup" is a Black Diamond rated trail and is a good introduction to the upper section. Access Stone Soup from the last leg of Boat Rock Trail.
