this trail is not recomended to anyone who is a hard core biker.I think it was a waist of my time and should be ridden by women and rookies.

Summary:
The Big Hill Trail system was designed and built for cross country skiing. There are 4 loops with varying types of trails from single track through beautiful aspens to double track roads that weave through the Black Hills forest with several up and down roller coaster rides that are just plain fun! If seeing wild turkeys, deer and elk, surrounded by beautiful wild flowers and in late July eating fresh wild raspberries for a treat are "a waste of time and should only be ridden by women and rookies", then my friends and I, who ride almost every day, we will feel like we have died and gone to heaven!

Recommended Route:
Loop A to Loop D and back is fun, relatively easy and there is a fabulous Spearfish Canyon overlook halfway through the ride that is a must! Loop A to B then Loop D is strenuous and challenging at times and is beautiful as well!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Old Baldy and the Tinton Trail

Summary:
Im not sure why the last guy was making this trail out to be bad. This is a nice easy to intermediate trail. No it is not a tough trail but its very scenic. I would recommend it to anyone. I guess I wouldnt recommend it to someone who is looking for tight singletrack with a bunch of switch backs. Ignore the first review and ride the trail!

Tinton Trail, Mount Baldy

Summary:
this trail has potential to be some great fast singletrack. unfortunately it never gets ridden and has become overgrown in alot of areas. compared to other rides in the black hills, big hill is a major let down. cow grazing area...beware of land mines!

Recommended Route:
get a map or just look at the one at the trailhead and go. c and d are mostly logging roads, b has some nice singletrack.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
old baldy
