After one of the steeper sustained climbs in the South Hills, you're at the top of Black Forest (so named for an old burn, although there is very little black remaining). Black Forest (aka Bum's Rush) is an old-school South Hills trail that doesn't see much riding these days. As a result, the vegetation is heavy and overgrown, and the trail is full of rubble and loose gravel. Keep your head up!
