    I'm assuming youíre new to SD. The freeride scene here is a little different than other parts of the US. Most trails in SD that I ride are on private property and are illegal to ride for one reason or another. Unfortunately can't go posting there locations on the internet because you end up with everybody and their mother showing up and soon your trail is trashed and shut down. Itís an unfortunate situation but thatís the way it is. If you want to find some good places to ride I suggest you get involved with the legal ones and make some friends that are in that scene. Check out the post listed one this sight about the Ted Williams trail maintenance. You can also check www.mountainbikebill.com. There are some decent trails listed here. Good luck and be respectful!!!

    So no I am not new in SD at all been riding around here for quite awhile. I realize its not smart to start spurting out info on secret trails, features etc....however if anyone is so inclined you can send me a private msg on where i might find some fun **** to ride that would be great. I am sick of plain single track and fire roads. Anything new and exciting would be much appreciated.....

    If you do your research, you wouldn't have a problem.

    I would suggest meeting new friends to show you where the spots are. But, if you are not good at making friends then you have the Internet and Google earth as your friend.

    You guys are crazy. Everyone knows the best freeride gnar in SD is at the MTB Skills Park at Mission Trails.

    Or, the first response was dead-on. I dunno.

    yea dude
    ted williams is rad
    i ride there all the time, but the rains freally f***ed it up
    there is a lot of erosion....deep...dark...mean erosion
    and somone decided it would be best to take as much dead brush as they could and block off half the trails!!!!
    but yea its fun there you should check it out...a little bit of everything for everyone
    and a lot of pritty gnarly stuff
    and there may or may not be a ladder bridge/ drop here or there

    that was official closing of trails that had to be done to keep the place open. there was a big trail day there. most of those trails were junk and pure ruts anyway.
