(map showing approximate location of the ride, in the Black Hills)

The Black Hills National Forest calls them forest service roads, but some riders call them 82′ non-width restricted trails. Many of these forest service roads are trail-like!

These are the trails the wider machines can legally use. Some of these trails are open year-round. These are the trails that often take you into the mystery and history of the Black Hills.

There are over 3,000 miles of these forest service road, 82″ non-width restricted trail-like trails. These trails are numbered on the MVUM, with three digit numbers like 201 or 201 2A.

There are no trails in the Black Hills like the trail-like forest service roads of the My Favorite Drive, Elk Mountain Drive. 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; open all year-around. And still there, is the wide-open scenery!

AFTER A GREAT DAY OF RIDING, STAY AT THE CREEK – WHITETAIL CREEK RESORT.

You will probably drive 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.
