(Click on Picture to Zoom)

*no entrance fee required unless you cross into Custer State Park

Wildlife will be abundant on both sides of the road as you ride through Wind Cave National Park. Unfortunately the trails in the Park are all roads. Riding these roads, will give you numerous opportunities to see wildlife. From Prairie Dogs to Prairie Ox (Prairie Dogs, Pronghorn, Coyote, Mule Deer, Elk, Bison) wildlife is a feature of this part of the ride. If you have time, visit the Cave that the Park is named for; Wind Cave.

As you leave the park on the West, you will enter into the National Forest and some nice, challenging trail-like Forest Service roads. Watch for Highland Creek, Rankin Ridge Fire Tower, and the Cold Springs School.
