Favorite Ride Custer Peak


(Click on the Picture to Zoom)

Custer Peak, named for General George A. Custer, is a prominent mountain in the Black Hills located south of the towns of Deadwood and Lead. For a great place to rent an ATV or UTV visit Mad Mountain Summer Adventures.

The Custer Peak Fire Tower is an active tower, with Forest Service personnel posted there every day. Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps volunteers are rehabilitating the 1941 tower.

Brian Fisher and his family, from Fisher ATV World stayed and played in this area the spring of 2015. If you can see his show he said, “the day was awesome.”

Most of the trails in this area are old logging roads, but if you are committed 62” trails are within driving distance.

Besides Custer Peak other sites to look for in the area include the BH National Forest Experimental Forest, the Curran Cabin and the CCC dam.

If your machine needs to be repaired visit Mad Mountain Summer Adventures.

  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.
