Trail Overview

As you travel through this trail, you are instantly surrounded by the Black Hills National Forest. The route is compromised of rocky terrain along with some uphill travel with views of the nearby town of Piedmont. The route is mostly one vehicle wide with some areas to pass. During the summer this should be a straightforward trail to get through, however, during winter the uphill pathways can get rather slick due to ice accumulation. A permit is required to travel on this trail.


The trail is easy for the most part during summer. In winter, however, the course may get slick on the uphill portions due to ice build-up. Airing down to 20-25 is recommended due to the rocky terrain in most of the spots.
