My family would like to take a MB vacation in the Black Hills area. What trails or sections of trails have the best flow, funnest features and/or go to the coolest spots? The parents are intermediate riders and the 12 and 17 year old boys are better or at least more daring.
Thanks,
Rich

Rich--

Acme is great advice or post/look under BHMBA.org under the forums, I'm sure many would lend a hand. I know there are group rides posted, you might even get someone to be a personal guide!

Bone Collector
Teton Trail
Cowboy Hill (keep in mind its brand new and is probably busy)

Bone collector is a fun technical trail that had tons of stuff to ride, the Teton Trail is basically a 7 mile downhill section that starts about a mile and a half out of Spearfish and ends in Spearfish City Park. Cowboy Hill is the latest $350,000 IMBA project finished out there and is actually in Rapid City itself right on Omaha....its the hill with the SDSM&T motif on it. Hope this helps, also as said above....talk to the guys at ACME Cycles, good dudes that know a ton of great spots to cruise! Ant

I'll be in the Black Hills area Friday, ~10 miles west of Custer to be precise. How hard would it be to get lost on some area trails; more specifically Deerfield loop and Hell Canyon. Also, how are the conditions on these trails? Any other recommendations?

I loved Little Spearfish, Rimrock, and Old Baldy

Rimrock has a great, slightly technical climb, fantastic flow on top banking through the ponderosas, and a somewhat technical, way fun descent. It can make a great figure 8 with the Little Spearfish Trail. Ridden CCW, this portion has a super-fun but non-threatening descent with oodles of air opportunities off the frequent waterbars. The Rimrock also connects with the Old Baldy trail. This is a high point and, being bald, gives great views of the hills.

Stop at the forest service office in Spearfish and get the trail brochures.
