(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.

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

The Shanks Ride is named after the Shanks Gulch Mine and Quarry.

Trail 6605 becomes a rock-crawler trail and may require you to turn around.

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

The Norris Peak Fire Tower no longer stands but there is evidence that it was once there if you will take an off-ATV hike via the Norris Peak Fire Tower Hiking Trail.
