This loop is a Black Hills Classic... There are a couple of short difficult climbs and a short technical contour but overall the trail is an intermediate outing. Most people will ride this loop counter-clockwise. Expect to navigate around and on some rocky features. Please respect the privilege we have to use the private trails on Storm Mountain Center's property and the fact that dogs are not allowed.

Access Info

Park at the Coon Hollow Trail Head located a short distance west of US-16 on Silver Mountain Road at Rockerville.

Wet/slick coming up out of the bottoms on the west end of the trail along Storm Mountain Road. Otherwise, great trail and fun ride.

 This is the nicest trail ive found in the black hills so far. Overall blue definitely, but there are a couple places to get a little speed, the ground isn’t too rocky, and there ar even a couple spots where you can tell people session drops. Really beautiful in spots as well, low rainforest like valleys and high spots with views.
