Mountain Biking

  • Mountain Biking Program Overview: Blackhawk members have access to a network of mountain bike trails for riders of all abilities. Over the past few years, we have transformed our trails from the “old school” rocky, rutted, fall-line style to new “flow trails” that are wide, fun, fast, and sustainable! We’re open both summer and winter, with occasional closings due to rain or icy conditions. Any club member can use the trails. Summer Mountain Bike memberships ($25/student, $45/single, $90/family) are available for those who wish to use the club only during the mountain bike season (April 1-October 31), and Winter Fat Bike memberships ($25/single, $50/family) are available for those who wish to use the club only during the winter "Fat Bike" season (November 1-March 31). For more information, visit our Facebook page or join the Blackhawk Mountain Bike Members Facebook Group.

  • Bike Ambassadors: Blackhawk mountain bike ambassadors help improve member experience, promote safe riding, and serve as the "eyes and ears" of the club during peak riding times. 

  • Mountain Bike Rules: Remember these five rules: ride safely, protect yourself, protect others, respect the trails, and communicate.

  • Mountain Biking Lessons: Learn about our youth lessons here

  • Trail Improvements in 2021: We continue to improve our trails. Our first big project involved removing hundreds of dead ash trees throughout the property, especially along the Howling Wolff trail, thanks to dozens of volunteers. The second major project was to complete the two downhill trails in the Gully. We organize smaller work projects throughout the biking season, so please stay tuned for announcements. 

  • Trail Conditions: Please check out the trail conditions at the CORP-sponsored website, and while you're there, please consider joining CORP to promote local trails and programs.
