If you like to hike without too much foot traffic Black Hill is the place to go. The climb to the top isn't easy but the fact it isn't a fire track gives you a challenge and adds character

I like this hike because it gives you a really beautiful view back towards the city. The trail is a loop, and it takes about and hour and a half. The trail is not very well maintained, and you would be going up or down...More

Black Hill is a challenging arena for the hiker and Trail Runner alike. There are various entrances to the park, with paths varying in difficulty. The inclines are relatively steep, however the views from the top are breathtaking.
