Black Forest Regional Park, located within the 200 square-mile area of ponderosa pine forest known as the Black Forest, is home to the Abert or tassel-eared squirrels, porcupines, red crossbills, Stellar’s jays, mountain chickadees, and nuthatches. The native song of the ponderosa pine, chorused by wind through its branches, is familiar to visitors who walk the park’s trails. ” Of all Pines, this one gives forth the finest music to the winds”, wrote early American naturalist John Muir. Abundant snowfall provides many opportunities for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
