** Trail 8215 and 8213 MAY both BE dead ends BECAUSE OF TREE FALL – even though this map shows them connecting

Some Black Hills trails are just fun to ride. These trails are in a location or navigate an area that helps the rider get close to the beauty of the Black Hills natural environment. Majestic trees, flowing waters, rocky outcrops, and hidden treasures are what makes a Black Hills ATV ride worth the effort. And if you get your fun from more challenging trails, the Merritt ATV 62″ Trails System is accessed by this trailhead.

RALLY with us this Memorial Day weekend, at the Sturgis Off Road Rally.

For a great place to rent an ATV or UTV visit Mad Mountain Summer Adventures. For a great Black Hills trail place to eat visit Boondocks Diner!

  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!
