Tucked into the scenic rolling hills of the Western Highlands, 439-acre Black Rock offers a variety of outdoor activities. Steep, wooded ledges covered with pine, hemlock and oak provide the setting for Black Rock Pond.

Great hike with the wife, son and dog. It was January so the trail had some pretty icy spots. Five star family hike any other season.

A little bit of a difficult hike but totally worth it!

this trail does not have the view most people are posting, but a good one nonetheless!

fun trail nice views . easy for adult moderate for kids under 13

Nice distance for families, beautiful view at the top.

Super cool destination and a fun route up. Kids especially like all the flat rock faces they can scamper on.

Great hike if you are looking for something to get the blood pumping. Parked in the Bidwell hill parking lot of Black rock park and took the trail all the way around for a great 5 mile workout.

Pretty decent incline to get to the caves. Lots of sign of wildcats. Bring a flashlight when u go to look into the nooks and holes.

Was a nice hike overall, but didn't find the caves.

I noticed other reviewers saying that they couldn't find the cave. When you are at the top, it's beneath you. Keep to the right, when the trail forks, go left. There should be a sign.

More than moderate. Climbing up rocks continuously was tough.

Went to this trail this afternoon nice hike, but a little bit confusing to find. We went off of the loop path for about a half of a mile, but found our way back. Once on the path it was nice, some steep inclines but not all that challenging. We realized on the way back how to get on the loop trail. When you enter the park to the left of the first parking lot there is a sign with people hiking on it, you go past the sign and follow it down past a little pond. Then you will see a big bridge on the left and a smaller bridge straight in font of you, you go over the smaller bridge and there is a fork in the path, you bare to the right and go up the path and you will come to a second fork in the path ( one blue path one red) both are the loop you can pick what side you you want to start with.

I forgot to add. The total loop of the hike that we did was 3.85 miles.
