“A wonderful, challenging trail connecting the horse camp to the main parking area of La Riviere.”— Kenny Slocum
Bearing straight up the hill, a steep climb eventually opens into a clearing. Runners can continue straight along the south (left) side of the clearing, or to the right to stay on the Blackhawk Trail.
Sticking on Blackhawk, the trail climbs a little further before eventually making a very steep, technical descent towards the horse camp. The trailhead at the horse camp is not marked, and just south of the first "entrance" another trailhead goes back into the woods, eventually connecting with the much-longer Yellow Trail. The Yellow Trail crosses vineyard road; those uninterested in running too much further should follow the road south (right) back to the barn, or double back the way they came.
Again, beware of the several intersecting trails. It's an easy route to get lost, which can be a good and fun thing so long as it happens at the start of the run and not the end.
