Black Hills Area Attractions
The Black Hills is an Outdoor Enthusiasts Dream!
Just minutes away from this old mining town there is: golfing in the beautiful hills, hiking on hundreds of hiking trails, fishing in Spearfish Canyon and other small streams, ATVing is a great way to see more of the Black Hills, mountain biking on the Mickelson Trail is a local favorite, camping, rock climbing, and hunting. In the winter months Lead, has on the average a couple hundred inches of snow. This allows the Black Hills to have a fantastic snow base for skiers on our two local are ski resorts, miles of gorgeous cross country ski trails, and snow shoeing. Snowmobilers will enjoy over three hundred miles of groomed trails. There is enough snow for everyone!
All trails start in Deadwood/Lead. We are the gateway to over 350 miles of the finest groomed snowmobile trails in the nation. The prestigious Mickelson trail is a 110-mile spin through the Black Hills which follows the original Burlington Northern Rail Line. Fun in the Black Hills begins in Deadwood/Lead, South Dakota!
Award-winning rodeos, rock and roll, the roar of Harleys and hot rods makes winning in the Deadwood/Lead area as easy as showing up. Historic reenactments and fun events are a bit more special when they are set in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
Deadwood’s historic gaming halls just minutes away from Blackstone Lodge, date back to the Gold Rush of 1876. Ranging from penny slots to $100 gaming machines, classic games and new twists, Deadwood’s got a game for you.
