From wooded trails to rugged peaks, the Black Hills hiking trails have it all. The diverse terrain of the Black Hills can make deciding on the perfect trail a challenge. In my search for the best hiking trails in the area, I came across a tool that might just make your decision making a little easier.
EveryTrail.com is a free and useful resource that allows you to connect with others who share similar interests in travel and outdoor activities.
