Strength:

I went today 05/02/2018 and the weather was perfect to hike to the top to see the SDSMT historical listing of its graduates. What an experience. Water was traveling in the creek. The picture we took of the rocks on the hills are so memorable. I made it 20 yards from the "M" at the top and it doesn't matter for the view was amazing. There is a view of Rapid City as well as the trees and rocks on "M" hill that cannot be described. You have got to see it with your own eyes. TRULY AMAZING!!! I cannot do cold weather nor can I do heights but this trip was warm, wonderful and worth the hike. I started walking up and found myself almost at the top. Then fear kicked in.

Weakness:

The only weakness was me for I am so afraid of heights that I missed reaching the top by 20 yards. 20 yards I say!!! So glad that my graduate son and his graduating friend made it up to get my pics of his name atop the hill.

At least 10 miles of mostly single track trails. Well marked but lacking trail names. You can pick up maps at ACME bike shop to help you out.Some of the best if not the best riding in the hills right here in town. Intermediate to advanced to extreme level of trails.Beautiful views of the hills and Rapid City.From tight pine forrest to techy ,rocky single track over ramps and teeter totters to fast downhill. A trail for all skill levels. You wont be dissapointed.

This moutain bike/hiking/running is 15 plus miles of trail on about 300 acres of property owned and maintain by the private Hanson Larsen Memorial Park Foundation. Check the website at www.hlmp.org for maps and updates. There is terrain to entertain everyone. The park was laid out by IMBA and largely constructed by Trail Arts. The Black Hills is world class riding and the Hanson Larsen Memorial Park is the best start to any trip. You will meet some locals who will share some places you will not find on your own.

For those of you who haven't heard there has been a major facelift on M-Hill. BHMBA members teamed up with Trail Arts to improve some of the existing trails and build a new DH trail. The DH trail is 60% complete, but once it's done it will Dirk's Draw has a kills drop in with a hard right hand wall ride into some more rocks. Once you finish the DH portion it takes you into the Jump line. The jumps were built with all skill levels in mind. You can go BIG or you can take it easy. It is a good time for all! For the person who likes XC, a challenging climb, mild to fast DH single tracks, rock gardens and everything in between. You will have a blast!

First the location marker is in the wrong place. "M" Hill / Cowboy hill is the hill just SW of I-90 Exit 57. Trailheads are at the SW and SE end of the hill.
Jason one of the trail builders from IMBA just gave me a tour of the new trails. While the old trails are still there. There are now trails there for all skill levels, with a serious black diamond down hill trail and more trails in the works. Looking for tight technical single track, buffed fast single track, or getting some big air, you'll find it here. And it's in the middle of the city.

Customer Service

Just start riding, can't get lost. You'll find a favorite trail in no time.

Very rocky and technically challenging. The climbs are quite steep and are one hellova workout! If you can climb the entire hill without taking a break, give yourself a pat on the back! There are numerious outlooks of the city and surrounding area. MHill probably has some of the most technically challening trails in the hills! Just a side note: most all of the trails up there are not built up to IMBA standards. So there are corners that dont work very well and you have to really burn into your brakes. Other than that, I think M-Hill has the best trails to offer here in town.

Customer Service

Climb up on the double track from the Dirt Jumps by U-Haul and take the first single track on your left. When you get to the radio tower, take your pick of downhills!

This is a fun hill to play around on. It has allot of rocks so it's a rough ride on a hard tail. However it is a very established area for riding, and has a variety of different features.
