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

This trail circuit consists of little used forest service roads, some gravel and some highway. It is a great trail circuit out of the city of Hot Springs.

AFTER A GREAT DAY OF RIDING, RELAX AT THE WHITETAIL CREEK RESORT CREEK-SIDE PAVILLION.

Argyle Ghost Town is named for an early settler to the area. No physical evidence remains, except the site rests next to the Mickelson Trail (old Burlington tracks).

RALLY with us the weekend of Sept 9-12, at the STURGIS OFFROAD RALLY.

A great place to stay and ride straight to the trails, is MYSTIC HILLS HIDEAWAY RESORT.

Some will not consider Song Dog Road (FS 682) a trail, but its change in elevation and path past Antelope Canyon, Shirt-tail Canyon, Wildcat Canyon and Theatre Ridge makes a ride here worth the time.

Cottonwood Springs Lake is a 14 acre recreation area for fishing, primitive camping and hiking adventure.

The Fall River Falls cascades through a valley of sandstone before joining the Cheyenne River. With an average temperature of 87 degrees this warm water river flows freely year around. Unfortunately the falls must be viewed from a distance because the area around the falls has been deemed a no trespassing area.

Although the circuit contains no 62″ width restriction trails, the Forest Service roads in the area are trail-like.

Connecting rides include the Bluebird Ride, Elk Mountain Ride, Hawkright Ride, Minnekahta Ride, Richardson Ride and the Wind Cave National Park Ride. Each of these are a distance apart and may require trailering (see details below).

A good place to park is an area just North of Cottonwood Springs lake where the forest service land begins. An alternative parking area closer to Custer is off Argyle Road (see details below).
