Outdoor Recreation

With a million-acre backyard playground, the Rushmore Region offers enticing year-round outdoor recreation opportunities, making it a natural fit for outdoor adventure companies. The region enjoys over 450 hiking and mountain biking trails, nearly 1,000 granite spires for rock climbing, 800 miles of sparkling streams for some of the best fly fishing in the country, and some of the highest vertical snow skiing between the Rockies and New England.

The Black Hills National Forest is a great place to venture through fresh snow powder on cross country skis, snowshoes, or the back of a snowmobile. And it has 18 picturesque lakes for water skiing, sailing, paddle boating, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, swimming, and scuba diving. –Visit site
