Runner Notes

This trail crosses a few fences, one of which you will need to duck under. Access the trail from the Ridge Trail. The beginning is near the interstate and can be noisy, but becomes quiet once in the pine trees higher on the trail.

Description

From the first junction from the trailhead under the interstate head across the prairie through grass and gypsum beds along the interstate. Cross under the barbed wire fence and follow the trail as it starts heading uphill.

The trail winds and switchbacks crossing through some oak trees and up and down small ravines. There are expansive views of the northern Great Plains. You then enter the pine forest and weave along the hillside with great views of Spearfish and the surrounding Black Hills. Once in the trees the sounds of the interstate dissipate.

Curve around the trail through one last stand of pine before coming to the junction with the Ridge Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and turkey, oak and pine.
