Northern Hills - ATV
The Northern Hills of the Black Hills National Forest is located in Spearfish, South Dakota. From here, you can access the more than 600 miles of ATV trails within the forest.
The Black Hills National Forest Motorized Trail System has more than 3,600 miles of roads and 600 miles of trails for ATV, UTV and other off-road riders. This includes 347 miles of trails for vehicles 62 inches and less in width.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The trails are well-maintained, but not always marked on the ground, so you will want to have a map with you.
Time To Complete
You can spend anywhere from a couple hours to several days exploring the trails in Black Hills National Forest.
Spring, Summer, and Fall
Spring and fall depend on the snow, so summer is the best time to ride.
Trail system fees are $20/week per vehicle or $25 for an annual pass.
