If you like history, the Redfern area is full of this. You may have to get off the ATV to see some of it – but a short walk will take you to some good sightseeing areas. Ride through an old mining district. Enjoy seeing remnants of that industry.

Trails in this area are some of the most popular in the Black Hills. They are close to Hill City and in the middle of everywhere else.

It is the overlooks that make this ride special. Watch for the overlook on Trail 606.

Hiking trails in the area are the Kinney Canyon Trail #40, and the trail that takes you to the Miners Hotel. To see the Seth Bullock Tower up close you will need to hike up Scruton Mountain.
Slate Prairie Ghost Town is a site with little evidence of a town. Fish and Hunter Ghost Town is another site more than a town. Silver City Ghost Town is still active.

An old Civilian Public Service Camp number 57 is located north of Deerfield Lake.

Slate Creek offers a favorite water crossing. Other water features in the area include; Slate Creek Dam, Nugget Gulch Waterfall, and Slate Creek Dam Waterfall.

There are numerous old buildings in the area including; the Bullock Cabin, the remnants of the Flannigan Cabin, the restored Gorman Cabin, the historic Silver City School House, what left of the Governor’s Cabin, the Slate Creek Cabins, remnants of the McKelvie Cabin and the Queen Bee Cabin.
