      The Victoria Lake Trail Network is a series of user built, non-system trails & stacked loops that are inter-laced with some Motorized System Trails. You will find excellent canyon views plus stunning scenery of the Central Hills and the adjacent prairie. There is no official way finding marking on these trails and cellular coverage can be spotty.

      These single-track trails are typical of the Black Hills, rocky, oftentimes narrow, twisty and occasionally somewhat steep. The Victoria area is composed of three main loops: Victoria's Secret, Loop 15, and the Victoria Lollipop. There are multiple road crossing within this system of trails. These trails can be combined in numerous ways offering a variety of loops catering to stronger intermediate and advanced riders.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
