Effective October 5, 2019, Black Rock Forest will now be charging Parking Fees at Reservoir Road Lot. While free to Friends of the Forest and annual supporters ($25+/year), daily use will be $5 per car.
Growing visitation numbers to the Forest has necessitated the need for forest crews to mitigate the impact of over 60,000 hikers and recreational visitors per year.
Additional benefits for Friends included free admission to BRF Hike programs for household members and a free annual 'Friends only" hike. Please see the Black Rock Forest site for more information.
