Hiking to White Rocks

the view from White Rocks in Deadwood South Dakota

I live in the Presidential neighborhood of Deadwood, so hiking up to White Rocks (elevation 5250 ft) is a common event for me.  It is a short hike, but a great workout that rewards you will great views of the area.

My Black Hills, Northeast #751 map shows this as BLM land – so it is open picture of Bear Butte from White Rocks in Deadwoodto the public.  The easiest way to find it is through Mount Moriah and and follow the signs all the way up to the grave of Seth Bullock.  There is a service road for the nearby mobile phone tower.  Just follow that up the hill and you’ll see trails heading to the top.

Enjoy the view.  To the North you can see Mount Roosevelt, home to Friendship Tower.  To the East you’ll see Bear Butte.  And to the West you can see Terry Peak.

This is just one of the many hiking options in the area.
