Classified as EASY-DIFFICULT trails by the Black Hills National Forest Service. The trail is made up of mostly broad road service and some single and dual track with sections. The Eagle Cliff area offers a marathon length, 26.4 miles, of trails over a variety of terrain that will take you from 5800 - 6500 feet with scenic pastures and vistas. There are several trailheads along US85, some only allowing winter access for cross country skiing.
