Carson Draw Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Woods and canyon trails designed for four-season use, offering solitude in the Wyoming Black Hills. The Carson Draw Trails primarily have been used by cross-country skiers in the past, but these trails offer backwoods treks of great beauty and solitude year-round.

Hikers and bikers can make a loop hike within the 6-mile trail system or go on a series of one-way hikes.You may also link up to the Sundance Trail System. Be alert for the presence of horse riders, who also use these nonmotorized trails. The system’s main trail departs from the campground and heads southwest before swinging northwest."

The Carson Draw area has a number of trails, all of which are fairly simple to hike. Although this region is rather beautiful I personally find the Eastern portion of the Black Hills to be more scenic. This area is rather dry and hot in the Summer so it is best to pack an abundance of water and be prepared. I have seen many deer and a few elk in this region and I also keep my eyes peeled for white and black Morels here in mid-late May as certain spots along the path have pretty decent patches of them. This trail is multi use and it is not unusual to encounter mountain bikes or horses along it but overall the traffic is pretty light. This is no suprise considering the abundance of other recreational opportunities in Wyoming and the Black Hills.
