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).

Plans for Summer of 2021
We have plans to continue our programs and to improve our trails this summer. See below for more information about summer programs. Our first big project involves removing the dead ash trees (100s of them) along the Howling Wolff trail. This trail may be closed as this work is being completed. The second major project is to complete the two downhill trails in the Gully. Finally, we plan to have several trail work days this spring. Please stay tuned for announcements.
