Organized groups must pre-register with Black Rock Forest by completing a group registration form before visiting. Weekend/holiday groups please register by noon Friday to ensure availability.
- Carpooling is recommended. Individual parking spaces cannot be reserved and we recommend that you arrive early.
- We ask that groups travel in cohorts of a maximum of 12 to mitigate the impact on the land. If your group is larger than 12, we ask that you split the group and take separate loops – perhaps meeting for lunch or a snack in the middle. We are happy to provide maps and hiking suggestions for your group to make your visit more enjoyable. NOTE: for the safety of all visitors, large groups may be turned away if they have not pre-registered and there is overcrowding in the parking lot.
- Vans: Please note that parking fees for vans (vehicles carrying more than 10 passengers) are $25/daily parking fees. Limited reserved spots for vans are available.
- Coach buses: Please note that our public parking lots are too small to accomodate coach buses. Please call ahead to make other parking arrangements.
