PARKING

There is currently no dedicated parking area for the Preserve.  Cars can be parked beside the entrance roads or on the road shoulder near the entrance points at Kettle Run Road (just south of Braddock’s Mill Road), or off of Borton’s Road, as shown on the Trail Map.   Please exercise extreme caution when using road shoulders, as cars often travel fast along these roads, drivers may not expect people to be present on road shoulders or crossing roads.

The Friends of the Black Run Preserve are working to establish safe, dedicated parking areas for the preserve.
