Summer Membership FAQs

Summer Mountain Bike/Trail Use FAQs*

Q: Are one-day passes available? 

A: We only offer summer memberships, for the low cost of $25/person and $50/family (April 1-Nov 30). We are a 501c3 non-profit educational organization with a mission to promote outdoor recreational activities and competitive sports for children and families. As a private organization, we depend upon our memberships and donations to support our educational programs and trail development. If you are not sure that you want to join, come out to the East Trailhead to check out the trails and talk with members who are riding. If you like what you see (and most people do!), you can join on your smartphone at:


Q: Are guided or unguided tours of the property are available? 

A: Although there are no formal tours available, most members are happy to show you around. You may come to one of the trailheads and ask a member for information, or leave us a message on our Facebook page, and one of our members can meet you there to show you around. We also have kiosks there, with more information. 


Q; Should I have a Blackhawk membership card or is there an ID number I should have available?

A: We do not currently provide membership card. Instead, we ask that members keep a record of their username and the email used when signing up. 


Q: When do the gates open and close?  Is there any chance that I could get locked in? If so, who do I contact and how? 

A: For security purposes and to prevent vandalism, the gates are open during the daylight hours. The person who locks the gate will check to make sure that no cars are on the property. 


Q: Which trails are open for walking/running? 

A: Hiking on our mountain bike trails can be dangerous for hikers and bikers alike. Therefore, we recommend that walkers and runners use the wide cross-country ski trails, roads, and biking trails that are designated for multi-use.


Q: Are dogs allowed?

A: Dogs are allowed but should be on leash when anyone is present and either biking or skiing.


Q: Where do I park?

A: If you are coming to mountain bike, you may park at the East Trailhead. Due to COVID-19, if there are already 10 or more cars in that lot, please park elsewhere. We will be creating a West Trailhead this summer, after the trails in the Gully are built. 


Q: Where can I find a map?

A: Trail maps are available at our kiosks at the East and West Trailhead, and on our website at:
