The Black Forest Trail incorporates one of the toughest climbs in the South Hills: a fall-line climb to the top of the Black Forest (so named for an old fire). This trail doesn't see a lot of use any more.

Needs a good raking and chainsaw work. There's a tree that's been there so long, a trail is developing around it.

Tree thinning has left a mess of debris and heavy equipment has torn up the trail.

 I rode this in the opposite direction as posted, to get to Evans. The first part is pretty trashed with trees and debris. Over all pretty forgettable except a steep section you cna really open it up on just before you hit the Evans Trail junction.
