Trails | Black Hills & Badlands - South Dakota

Trails

Our outdoor mecca

The Black Hills are full of monumental works of both man and nature, evident too in the world-class hiking, biking, motorized and non-motorized trail offerings one can find here. Whether hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, ATVing or snowmobiling, the uncrowded, natural surroundings of the Black Hills and Badlands are an outdoor mecca with over 450 miles spread across 75 different trails. 

And not many places can boast two trails near 110 miles in length like the nationally-renowned George S. Mickelson Trail or the Centennial Trail that run the length of the Black Hills from north to south. Or can the same place offer up the a spiritual hike through the wondrously sparse Badlands National Park on the Notch Trail, a horse-ride through peaceful mountain meadows in Custer State Park or a challenging ride in a hidden urban oasis like the Hansen-Larson Memorial Park Trail System in Rapid City. Between all the national forest and rec areas; national and state park units, there truly is a trail for all ages and abilities to get out and enjoy.
