The Black Hills of South Dakota Pack Trips

The Black Hills have since prehistoric times have had a mistic about them that has drawn man to the area for eons. The Indian Tribes considered the Black Hills Sacred Ground and very few ever entered the area of the higher hills. One reason was that they heard loud booming noises and thought that the Black Hills was the home of many spirits that they believed in. We think now it was thunder storms that made the noises . They sure can get loud.

It was Custer that opened up the Black Hills to non-native explorers when his party found Gold in French Creek, East of the present day town of Custer.

We will be packing into an area of the higher hills, wide open country that is just waiting to be explored. On most every trip we have seen elk, deer ( both white tail and muleys) coyotes, Bald eagles, wild turkey, porcupine, an occasional wolf and there is always a good chance to spot a Mountain Lion or Black Bear.

Big meadows, clear streams, wide open spaces, safe, trail wise horses, cowboy cooking, range tents with floors and zippers, bright days and starry nights, cowboy songs and poems, all add up to an adventure of a lifetime.

This awesome 4 day back country pack trip adventure Black Hills back country pack trip is in the higher hills, where we camp near the headwaters of Spring Creek. That spring is so clear and cold it tastes great. We do day rides out of that camp.
