Located 3 miles north of Sundance, on Forest Road 838 in the Black Hills National Forest. The trail is on old logging roads, which were once good doubletracks but are now less distinct track. In some areas the track is grass-covered.

I would not recommend this trail to anyone wanting to go through Sundance to bike for a few hours before moving on to better places. The map was not helpful -- I would have benefitted more from instructions on where not to go because this trail is one of many in a maze of old logging roads and cattle trails. Roads go every which way and often end up on private property at the bottom of deathly steep hills that you may have to walk down and then back up again. These trails put the "mountain" in mountain biking in every way - rocky, steep, and breath-taking except in a bad way. For those who have the patience to get lost in this labyrinth, these trails have potential to be a fun place to spend a weekend becoming familar with the 50+ miles of old roads. But throw away your maps. The trails are marked with signs, but they are poorly placed, knocked over, and do not match the trail names on the local map. The random coloured flags add to the confusion.
