We had hiked the Black Forest Regional Park before the fires four years ago. Then I'd agree on a 4-5 star rating. It was a lush and beautiful park. Now is a bit of a wasteland. If you aren't after scenery, it is a nice easy hike, great with kids and dogs but it certainly isn't very visually appealing. It seems a little like hiking through Mordor. I just didn't want anyone to be disappointed by the high ratings. I'd imagine most were give before the 2013 fires.

Map above is Black Forest Regional Park on Milam and Shoup roads in Black Forest. The map below, by Tim Board, is Section 16, the trailhead is located on Burgess Road in Black Forest. Both are great trails!

This trail has easy to moderate loops perfect for a brisk walk with friends or the dogs. As well great mountain biking potential. Spectacular views of the front Range and pikes Peak come with little effort. There are also restrooms and a playground for children attached to a field, something for everybody here! Tennis and basketball too. What's not to love??????

Never being to black forest, but want to visit there in fact planning also. Heard a lot about it. Was wondering why it is called "Black forest"?
