Description

After reaching the summit of Rocky Knob through 'Ol Hoss, there will be a sign labeled "Black Forest" on the left. Take this, and pass over a small wooden bridge and prepare for some gnar. It all starts with a pretty substantial rock drop, then continues with some steep, chunky tech. From there it's nonstop drops, steepness, rocks, and fun. Black Forest eventually connects to Boat Rock and Stone Soup.
