Trail Description
About this trail
You follow a one way out of the trailhead to get to the loop, when you come to the fork stay right, and follow
the orange markers. They are all over the place, and keep the trail well marked, there are equal amounts of
ups and downs, the downs are definitely fast and fun.

Review: The map linked to the app does not send you to the main trailhead. You want Coon Hollow Trailhead in Rockville near Hwy 16 and Main Street. By the time I found it, I was running out of daylight. I did get a little ride in; steep rocky ascent. What I did was fun and challenging. I will be back to do the whole loop!

Review: Was given a tour of this trail by Scott, a local rider. Had a great ride with my 2 sons on a perfect late afternoon. The trail has a good variety of rocky climbs & fast flowing downhill sections. Will definitely ride again when visiting the area. Only 5 min. drive from campground in Rockerville & 15 min. drive to Mt. Rushmore.

Review: parked at the trailhead and started across the road. Climb climb climb! It was worth it with all the DH style features coming back down. I just stumbled upon the trail while visiting Mt Rushmore. Great views from the top

Review: I really enjoyed this trail! Balanced in that it wasn't just up then down. It was some nice climbs then a bit of downhill then another ascent, etc. It had just rained so the backside of the course as a bit slickery but otherwise it was awesome. The trail is marked very well and is counter-clockwise so you can put in headphones and not worry about running into someone. Loved the "downhill" gravity cavity style feature at the end. We did venture across the road to look at the true downhill stuff but it was too gnarly for us and wasn't really worth it for us xc style riders.

Review: Tons-o-fun! Offers a fantastic tour up & down the piney terrain of the Black Hills! For a flatlander from Minnesota, this trail had plenty of prolonged climbs, a few fantastic vistas, and lots of chunky rock! The Super D portion was an absolute blast...with more technical, sharp, tire-eating rocks to get over/through and some screaming swooping downhills.

Review: This is probably my favorite ride that's not too far from Rapid City. From the parking lot, you'll see the beginning of the trail to the west. It's generally ridden in a counterclockwise direction, so keep turning right until you start heading generally north. I think the main loop is about 7 miles, with some pretty good climbs and descents. You aren't going to get into anything too technical, but the rocks can be sharp in places, so pick your line carefully, or your tires won't thank you. If the main loop doesn't give you enough downhill, head over to the southern or "Super D" section. Basically, start as you normally would, but when the trail crosses a dirt road, take a left down the road, cross the road at the T intersection and veer a bit to the left. This section of trail is shorter and starts off with a nice long climb to the top of the hill. From there, it's almost all downhill, with a few jumps thrown in (you can ride around them if that's not your thing) as well as some nice banked turns near the bottom, so just open up and let'r rip! And if danger is your middle name, there is a gravity section just across the street from the parking lot. I'm not that brave, so you're on your own there. . .

Review: The trail is actually 10 miles, but I only had time to squeeze in the first three miles. It was a blast! Great singletrack, lots of rock and rocky climbs, before you know it your flying back downhill. Everything was well marked on the trail.
