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

A great ride out of Custer South Dakota. Ride deep into the Black Hills in the area of old gold mines and a Forest Service fire tower.

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

The Bear Mountain Fire Tower is a favorite destination. Trail 293 is an easy ride up, Trail 299. 1C/1K is a challenging ride up.

Trails 284. 1F and 284 .1E although deadends, take you deep into the Black Hills National Forest.

Trail 297. 1F is a nice ride into a mining district. Old mining evidence is visible just off the trail.

MYSTIC HILLS HIDEAWAY RESORT OFFERS A GREAT STAY, AND ABILITY TO RIDE DIRECTLY TO THE TRAILS.

During your Bear Mountain Ride, keep an eye on the horizon for a glimpse of the Crazy Horse Monument.

You will find a number of historic mines, close to the trail. Watch for the D&R mine, Grand Junction mine, Hard Scrabble mine, North Star Gold mine, Sunset Lode mine, and Pine Tree mine.

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

Historic ghost towns found in this area include; Camp Custer Ghost Town and Sylvan City Ghost Town. A small amount of evidence remains at each.

If you look carefully, remnants of old cabins and buildings can be see. including the Tenderfoot Creek cabin. There is also some evidence that shows the location of the old Junction Ranger Station.

There are no width restriction trails on the Bear Mountain Ride.

  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!
