City/town information
College town with a quaint downtown area. Lots of neat shops and local restaurants. Take the Scenic Byway to or from this town and enjoy a treat at the end. Don't miss - Spearfish Falls, Savoy Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and if you're up for adventure, Devil's Bathtub (beware poison ivy in summer months). Ask me for details on lesser known trails that I like!

The true home of Mt Rushmore, now featuring a very large Sasquatch carved by the Dahl brothers. Take 40 out of Keystone to hike Hippie Hole or to ride motorcycles down playhouse road.

Home of Devil's Tower. Drive from Rapid to Belle Fouche and on to Hulett from there for a more scenic drive to this national monument.

Hikes
I have a plethora of suggestions here as I have hiked many trails in the area. Hit the highlights here but talk to me for some more remote hikes or specific scenery interests.
Short & sweet. Historic balloon launch site with beautiful views for those looking for a hike that takes less time. In the fall once a year, local hot air balloons launch from here.

Family friendly hike alongside creek - some small swimming holes if you hunt them out. Attaches to small Dalton Lake at one end. Reach this from I-90 to Piedmont.

Ask me which way to go on this one as there are two trails - beware, lots of poison ivy on this one. Unavoidable in the summer.

My favorite of the Badlands hikes. Do not go if you fear heights or are unable to climb a steep incline. My 8 year old niece did do this one but monitor children carefully as steep dropoffs with no handrails.

My favorite winery! Not sold in town anywhere - great for sweeter wine drinkers. I love the cherry and blackberry wines. They do have some nice table whites/reds as well.

Super cute venue on the same property as the beautiful and massively popular Prairie Berry winery. Sometimes igloos here during the cooler months. Try the wheats.

Great local wines here. Mythical Beasts has been on my rotating pours lately. Great reds too. - I recommend foregoing the brewery and restaurant under the same name.
