The Black Hills have hundred of miles of wonderful trails to hike or take your mountain bike through. We also have some of the greatest scenery for miles around the area, so whatever your skill level, you're bound to have a great time! 


The Black Hills offers easy access day hike options, as well as longer backpacking trip options for the whole family. From looking out over Spearfish on the Crow Peak trail to viewing Mount Rushmore and the surrounding Black Hills from the top of Harney Peak (the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains). You'll see some of the most amazing rock outcroppings and forest vistas in the midwest. To see some of these trails, be sure to check out the Black Hills National Forest page.
