From the kiosk just beyond the parking area, proceed ahead on the red-blazed Duggan Trail. In about half a mile, the red trail ends at a junction with the blue-blazed Reservoir Trail. Continue ahead on the blue trail, which crosses Ben's Bridge (a wooden footbridge) and climbs along a picturesque stream, with cascades and waterfalls, following an old woods road....

Closure of Black Rock Forest during hunting season
I presume that you are referring to Black Rock Mountain (not to Black Mountain, which is in Harriman).  The entire Black Rock Forest is closed to hikers during hunting season, which begins on Saturday, November 16th.

Black Rock hike
We followed the directions to the parking area, coming from Route 9 southbound, and it worked fine. We enjoyed this hike - not just Black Rock, but also the reflections of the sky and the fall foliage in the reservoir.
