Black’s Bluff is open to the public during daylight hours without a reservation. To walk the trails at Black's Bluff, drive a little southwest of the (entirely inactive) quarries. There is a trail to the spring, unmarked at the road, but it's the last cable gate on the left before our property ends. You'll know you're in the right place because the big wooden "Welcome to Black’s Bluff Preserve" sign is about 20 yards down that trail, although it's difficult to see from the road. Once again, beware of fast traffic, and park beside the cable gate parallel to Black's Bluff Road with all your wheels off the road. If you pull straight down to the gate, you risk getting stuck on slick clay. Not ADA accessible. The public trail, Spring Trail, will take you to the spring pools. It is moderately difficult and begins just beyond the preserve sign.

Nowhere to park. We had fun exploring along the creek and climbing some rocks, but there isn’t much to this trail.

Wasn’t well maintained when I went and so I lost sight of the trail. Lots of poison ivy!

Space for just a few cars, drive slow or you'll miss the pull-off to the side to park. Nice trail that's surprisingly well "maintained." You can actually go about twice as far as the map indicates. Bring water shoes for the kids and they can play in the creek.

Short trail to spring. Park at the small pull off. The trail begins at the cable and follows a stream up the the spring.
