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!
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.

RALLY with us the weekend of Sept 10-13, at the STURGIS OFFROAD RALLY.
