Black Mountain Route

The route was a three up and down over three mountains. First time I did it I got lost ran out of daylight and had to head back unfinished on road. Went back a few months later, determined and with more time (start early..) and nailed it. Awesome

Good Points
Sweeping natural trails with miles and miles of singletrack, gnarly natural rocky descents. Beautiful lakes and woods. All you could ask for really.
Bad Points
Not waymarked so easy to get lost.. take a map, compass, supplies, a positive attitude and a mate.
