The final epic descent of the Sturgis Knifeblade and a local favorite, the section of trail most often referred to as "Bulldog" features Black Hills single track at its finest. Bulldog is fast, with a smattering of rocks and spine-tingling switchbacks. This section of trail is one of the most popular rides in the Northern Black Hills, and is typically done as an out-and-back from the Alkali Creek Trail Head.
