I've ridden in this area several times, but I never climbed up Black Mountain. Real hikers get there via the Cumberland Trail, but there's a parking lot only a mile away for the flatlanders. I started out on Deep Draw Road, a fine twisty road which crosses Byrd's Creek. The road up to the trailhead is quite narrow. It reminded me of the pictures you Brits post of your rides on 'the lanes.' A moderate hike and I arrived at the first overlook. I think there are three overlooks, the whole loop is about 2 1/2 miles. It helps to be a bit of a hillbilly to climb about the rocks at the top.
