Cardiac/Recovery Ridge trail is part of the Dakota Five-O mountain bike race hosted by the Ridge Riders of the Black Hills every Labor Day weekend since 2001. From the north, the trail begins in the Iron Creek Drainage including a short punchy climb and then opens into several beautiful meadows.
About 2 miles in, there's a steeper section that takes you up to Recovery Ridge. This is a beautiful section that hugs the scenic rim of Spearfish Canyon. Several miles of twisty single-track eventually bring you to the Rimrock trails. If you stay on the upper-Rimrock trails, it will take you to the Old Baldy parking-lot. This is one of the gems of the Five-O.
