Are you looking for a great single track for your next bike ride? Do you think that great mountain biking can't happen near bustling Montage apartments? If so, it's time to take your bike out to Black Ledge Falls. The steep hills and water crossings make for a great ride, and it's surprisingly close to apartments in Rocky Hill. Both hikers and bikers come to see the stunning 25-foot waterfall at the end of the trail.
The 1.5-mile loop to the waterfall is short enough to complete after work on a weekday evening. There's plenty of challenging terrain for advanced bikers, but short sections of trail for beginners work around most of the difficult obstacles. Hikers are also welcome on the trail, so don't worry if mountain biking isn't for you. With a mild elevation gain, the trail is perfect for a short hike. If you're hoping for a longer ride or hike, the trails here connect to others in surrounding state parks.
This shade-covered trail is a great place to stay cool in the summer. Dip your toes in the clear stream that runs through the park, or splash in the waterfall at the end. There's really not a bad time to visit this incredible area. Come in the fall to see the leaves change color or explore the ice cave that forms when the waterfall freezes in the winter.
