      Storm Mountain is one of the most heavily used trails in the Black Hills. And there is good reason-
      - it possesses almost anything the rider could want. Smooth, fast, wavy, low angle down hills; challenging,
      steep, rocky climbs; insanely steep descents; rock drops- it can all be found at Storm Mountain. The trail is
      rocky, technically challenging, and sports 145 ft/mile of climbing. There are over 10 miles of trail and virtually all of it is single track. Currently these trails are not system trails. Please respect the rules on the trails through Storm Mountain Center and leave your dog at home.
