Mountain Biking in Spearfish Canyon


Spearfish Canyon Lodge is central to the trail system that runs through the northern Black Hills.

The Black Hills offer some of the best mountain biking trails in the country because of their ease of access as well as the challenging terrain. The trail system has become one of the premier biking areas in the nation because of its variety as well as its scenic quality.

Trails: Little Spearfish Trail and Rimrock Trail


These trails share a trail head that starts only five miles south of The Lodge. They form a single 11 mile system of trails created from three loops that are interconnected. The system winds up through the Canyon making for a steep ascent, but then comes back down into the beautiful valley of Little Spearfish Creek. The trails are mostly single-track and are maintained throughout the summer and fall months as weather permits. Little Spearfish Trail and Rimrock Trail have a general rating of moderate difficulty as the terrain varies from lush grass fields to steep single tracks covered in loose rock.
