It's a little old, but still a great detailed guide to Black Hills area hiking. We purchased one prior to a late spring trip and then, realizing we'd left it at home, purchased an electronic version too. The Kindle version isn't nearly as easy to navigate (at least on the Kindle app of my iPad), so I'd recommend the print version. Provides good info re: difficulty, length, location/access directions, maps, and a good narrative description for a wide variety of trails,
I was told that this was the best hiking book written for the Black Hills and Badlands, so I bought several to spread them out to hiking buddies. It is well-written and more descriptive where the trails are more difficult to locate. Well done.
Great book about the Black Hills and Badlands! I particularly like that the author goes into detail about what each trail can be used for. I mountain bike, hike and snowshoe. I like that I can see what activity best fits the trail and what the level of difficulty seems to be.
