Favorite Ride Elk Mountain


Click on the Picture to Zoom

There are no trails in the Black Hills like the trail-like forest service roads of the My Favorite Ride, Elk Mountain Ride. It is framed by the results of a 2001, 21,000 acre forest fire that took most of the trees. But the trails are still there. And still there, is the wide open scenery!

You will probably ride in low most of the day, because the trails are just that technical. And, its 5662 feet to the base of the Elk Mountain Fire Tower.

  1. The Black Hills have great ATV trails and Forest Service roads. I have traveled most of them. Our forest service roads are either road-like or trail-like. On my Favorite Rides pages, I have highlighted the many TRAIL-LIKE Forest Service Roads.

    I put this website together to help others enjoy their ATV visit to South Dakota. When I ATV out of my state, I realize how difficult it is to plan a three day ride without good information. I hope my website will be good information for you.

    Over 1000 visitors a month use this website. Let us know what you think about Black Hills atving!
