Old Baldy, Trail #66

Ride Description

Classified as a MODERATE trail by the Black Hills National Forest Service. The trail is made up of single and dual track with some forestry road sections. This scenic trail is a 7.3 mile loop. It is meandering with several small climbs and decents. Waterbars offer some jumps and some sections are very rocky. The one mile spur to the summit of Old Baldy Mountain takes you up to 6100' with a spectacular 360' view to the north, Wyoming to the west and the Hills to the south and east.


From Deadwood Bicycles, exit right from the parking lot and drive south through Lead on US85. Turn left at the light in Lead, onto US14A/85. Proceed approximately 8 miles to Cheyenne Crossing and Spearfish Canyon. Turning right, following US14A to Savoy, about 7 miles. Turn left onto Forestry Road 222 past 76 Trail and Roughlock Falls. Proceed several miles to Tinton Road (FR134). Within two miles you will see a small 'Hikers' sign on the right side of the road. The trailhead and parking lot for Old Baldy and Rim Rock Trails is opposite the sign.
