Black Mountain is a great first time hikers trail. The hiking at BM is easy and the rock climbing couldn't be better. Also, the trail is easily accessible from the parking lot. Definitely check out the old stone chimneys, spring house, and southern overlook.

But the AllTrails app directions are completely WRONG!!

Black Mtn. Loop trail is 1.8 miles. The Black Mtn. thru section of the Cumberland Trail is about 3.5 miles in length. The seed ticks and chiggers are everywhere near the campsite. If you hike it in warm weather don't forget your bug spray. The Southern overlook is one of the best overlooks on the plateau.

Gorgeous, breath-taking views just outside of Crossville. Not a hard hike, great spot at the overlook to pack a picnic lunch and eat it while enjoying those views!

Very easy and fun hike. This does have a great overlook view from the south side. It looks over Grassy Cove and Grandview beautifully. Fun for the whole family.

Easy beautiful hike around all the rocks, fantastic overlook! We hiked down to the bat cave also, which is a pretty moderate hike.

This is a great trail. I ran the first 0.5 miles of it, and made it to the southern overlook. It's an incredible view. As for mountain biking, it would be absolutely fun. There is enough room to maneuver the trail with lots of ruts and roots to devour. If you're looking to camp, there are spots to do this as well. It's an overall good trail.
