The hiking at BM is easy and the rock climbing couldn't be better. Also, the trail is easily accessible from the parking lot. Definitely check out the old stone chimneys, spring house, and southern overlook. But the AllTrails app directions are completely WRONG!!Parking Area Address:3004 Owl Roost RdCrossville TN 38555United StatesGPS:35.8681, -81.8876Simon Leong4 months ago2 Completed1 Reviewsbeautiful scenery! mountain biking no longer permitted in this area :(Sandra Swilley4 months ago1 Completed1 ReviewsSuper rock formations and beautiful views.

Loop trail is 1.8 miles. The Black Mtn. thru section of the Cumberland Trail is about 3.5 miles in length. The seed ticks and chiggers are everywhere near the campsite. If you hike it in warm weather don't forget your bug spray. The Southern overlook is one of the best overlooks on the plateau.Marissa Webb10 months ago28 Completed11 ReviewsGorgeous, breath-taking views just outside of Crossville. Not a hard hike, great spot at the overlook to pack a picnic lunch and eat it while enjoying those views!G Landen1 year ago10 Completed5 ReviewsVery easy and fun hike. This does have a great overlook view from the south side. It looks over Grassy Cove and Grandview beautifully. Fun for the whole family.Gerry Hallcox2 years ago10 Completed5 ReviewsEasy beautiful hike around all the rocks, fantastic overlook! We hiked down to the bat cave also, which is a pretty moderate hike.Stacy Reed2 years ago38 Completed15 ReviewsBeautiful views, we hiked this one at sunset. There is a small springhouse during the hike. Hike is a nice easy hike. Two different areas of overlooks.Michael Curry4 years ago20 Completed16 ReviewsThis is a great trail. I ran the first 0.5 miles of it, and made it to the southern overlook. It's an incredible view. As for mountain biking, it would be absolutely fun. There is enough room to maneuver the trail with lots of ruts and roots to devour. If you're looking to camp, there are spots to do this as well. It's an overall good trail.
