    Default Anyone ever ride Blackbird State Forest in DE?

    A friend of mine went hiking there the other day and said it was a beautiful place to ride/ hike, etc and that there were 45 miles of trails. So since it is only a bit over an hour a way, I thought I'd try it out soon. So anyone ever ridden there? I've been looking online but there's not that much useful info out there for this forest. I need to call the state and find out where to park too- so if anyone knows the best trailhead that would be very appreciated too

    My mom's farm is 3 min around the corner so I grew up riding there. It's a really nice place to ride and there is a designated trailer parking spot. You can ride in the woods or out in the open fields. There are maps at the rangers station and also in the parking area. There are several marked trails.

    There are also may little logs to jumps on the trails which makes it super fun.

    This will tell you where to park and give you a map of the trails.
