About the Black Hills Travel Blog

Hiking through ancient forests. Exploring a couple of the longest caves in the world. Ice-climbing waterfalls.

There are plenty of good reasons to travel through the Black Hills. On the border between western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming, the granite peaks and ponderosa forests of this mountain range are some of the oldest on the planet. Combine that natural beauty with American Indian heritage, a dose of Western history and a location central to North America, and you’ve got a big place to explore.

The Black Hills Travel Blog is written and maintained by avid travelers and veteran Black Hills explorers, some of whom have written travel guides to the region for national publishers including Frommers, Fodor’s, National Geographic and Globe Pequot. See the individual author pages below for contributor bios. The blog is supported by members of the Black Hills area visitor industry, including South Dakota Tourism, Rapid City Convention & Visitors Bureau, Deadwood Chamber of Commerce, Black Hills Central Reservations, Custer Chamber of Commerce and Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes.
