Summary:
Just to you all know Ranger Tom will cite you. A few buddies and I went to check it out for the second time today. After about 1/2 an hour the ranger showed up to let us know that they are looking for whoever built the cours. So stay clear

Summary:
This ride is now on the rotation!

Although the first climb up to the viewing location is brutal, the ride really improves once on top the ridge line and you ride through the valleys between Black Mountain area.

In particular, we extended the ride and rode down the North side of Black Mountain. We found one awesome single track that took us all the way down to 4S Ranch area. From there, we climbed back up the ridge to the shack and then enojoyed a great downhill descent back to the slalom course.

Recommended Route:
Pretty much as described. We took a variation on Black Mountain and descended down the rough road to the north until we found the single track trail to the right. Makes for a longer, but well worth-it extension.

Summary:
First of all: "What type of cyclist best describes you?" None listed! I ride a 5" travel Uzzy SL on trail rides and 8" Turner DH on the obvious... either 4-5 times a week.

The "PQ slalom" is NOT all it's made out to be and definitely not a place that needs publicity. We're in world war three here in SD, just fighting to get legal access for our kids on the basic stuff (and that's all that's really left) for the future. TWP, and others I won't mention here are more fun for the big bikes and don't result in you screwing over other cyclists --if only by your presence in big, scary, he-must-drink-Red Bull pads and helmets.

Leave PQ to the kids, XC / trail riders and old farts like me to practice on.

Ahhh Yes, Grasshopper agrees... Went there on Friday on the Uzzy. Good thing too.. Your right it's probably not much for a big bike, may be good for an old fart like me to practice. I think it has great potential if somebody wanted to put a lot of work into it, But, I think it's too close to homes and too many people, DH bikes full face helmets etc. and it will get too much attention and dozed. I agree with Ebasil, leave it to the kids,

On the other hand, if you really down for some good training, climb all the way to the top along the ridge up to the tele pole... something like 900ft of elevation in less than 2 miles.

Recommended Route:
None. Unless you like to climb on your XC / trail bike.

Summary:
Damn nice trail, we found it here on MTBR while looking for something new and it turned out to be a great find. The first 2 posts were right on. The first uphill is loose and steep to a great view of SD, we could see the islands down in Mexico! After that just go explore there's a few trails back there. Enjoy!

Recommended Route:
Same as others
