Deerfield Lake Loop Trail #40L

The Deerfield Lake Loop Trail #40L is nestled right in the middle of the Black Hills National Forest, northwest of Hill City and Custer, south of Lead and Deadwood and due west of Rapid City, this trail is within reasonable driving distance no matter where you are in the Black Hills. This trail, which encircles Deerfield Lake, is not overly technical but has a fairly substantial amount of elevation change given its distance. The Lake Loop Trail makes an excellent destination for hikers and horseback riders and while it is a good mountain bike trail, there are better cycling destinations in the Black Hills. At the eastern end of the loop the trail is intersected by Deerfield Trail #40, which connects Trail #40L with the Mickelson Trail and the Centennial Trail #89.

Centennial Trail #89

The Centennial Trail is a mostly single track trail spanning well over 100 miles while traversing the entire Black Hills from north to south. It begins in the northern hills at Bear Butte just outside of Sturgis and ends in the southern hills near Hot Springs. The majority of the mileage of the Centennial Trail is on lands under the jurisdiction of the Black Hills National Forest, but the trail also crosses lands controlled by other federal and state land management agencies.
