Hero: Spearfish Mountain
small-sr Icon

Spearfish Mountain is a short, fun trail just south of the town of Spearfish. The main route climbs through thick ponderosa forests and small meadows before opening up to panoramic views of the valley below. On a clear day, you can also catch a glimpse of Crow Peak and Bear Butte. The out-and-back trail ends at a private property gate.

The scenic trail is suitable for stock, aggressive 4x4 vehicles, and has just enough challenge to be fun. Erosion has exposed a few channels and a rocky section in the road that will keep the 2WD vehicles off the upper section. No defined or used dispersed campsites are visible along the trail, but the Black Hills National Forest allows for dispersed camping up to 300' from the center of the road along the entire route.
