Conditions have been excellent at Black Rock as of late with all the un-seasonably warm weather we have been having.  If you are out riding and see any our awesome trail managers lend a hand if you can or let them know how great they are for keeping things running so good all over the mountain.

Blackrock can be ridden by riders on hardtail 26/29ers, full suspension mtn bikes of varying wheel sizes and travel. We have even seen BMX bikes and unicycles out on the trails.  At a minimum riders are asked to wear a helmet when on the Mt. Brown trails. Elbow/knee pads, gloves and full face helmets are strongly encouraged but not required. Chest/back body armor are also a good idea but are bulky and hot when climbing. Many riders like to think of Blackrock as armor assisted cross country(aka Freeriding). Many riders push their 40+lb bikes up and have a great time descending on the longer travel bikes that excel in railing the bikes into the corners and jumps. But 20-30lb XC or all-mountain bikes can have a great time.
