Details

This is one of the best climbs as well as descents in the Black Hills. It's done as an out and back, but you can extend it as far as you want. The typical turnaround is at the top of the first peak, which is about 4 miles from the Akalai parking lot. You can continue on to the next peak via the Three Sisters climb, which is steep, but worth the climb. Coming back down Bulldog is fast and kinda flowy, but not super flowy. If you want a fast time going down, you'll be pedaling your heart out.
