    Its okay hike a lot of mountain bikers like it. There is always someone back there durning the day. But I dont know about a night hike because they have been having mountain lion problems for a while.

    I have mountain bike and hike Blackstar many times. The only thing to worry about in Blackstar is a guy that lives up there and thinks he own the whole canyon. He usually carries a gun with him and tries to scare people off, just beware of him. Mountain lions are a risk, but I worry more about the dumb ass guy that lives up there.

    yeah,i've herd about him. since it is a national forest my friends and i are going to go night hiking with our guns. (obama passed a law saying that it is legal to open carry in a national forest. :). i double checked with Captain Mike R. with the US Forest Service in CA) we just want to investigate the things we herd about it. like the secret hidden ranch, abandoned indian village, random empty swimming pool out in the middle of no where, some water fall that has a cave behind it, etc...

    I wish you the best, I ride Blackstar at night in the Fall, Winter and Spring. I have heard it suppose to haunted and such, never seen anything or heard anything out of the ordinary, the local idiot that lives up there, has been know to put a wire or chain across the road at night, so always on the look out for that and other nonsense. There is a few old mines, up in the canyon, but they are fenced off, I would reccomend you stay away from them, because hazardous and toxic chemicals were used in the mining process. A whole lot of hype for a fire road that goes up to Beak's place and to a Dopler tower.

    if your thinkin the random empty swimming pool with all the graffiti you get up there from a gate that is usually closed right by OCFA station 18 in trabuco canyon you have to hike up there but i think there is a way to get up there driving though i havnt done it myself but the pool is really cool bout a mile hike
