Black Farm Management Area

★★★★★  2.41 miles i loved this spot. varied terrain, beautiful little pond, cemetery, fields, the wood river… just lovely. and not too hikey. maybe 20:80, hikey:walkey. a bit climby, but nothing serious. almost 2 1/2 miles of trails. another ken weber winner. also found 1 of the 3 geocaches on the property.
