There is a small area of South Dakota that is part of the Custer National Forest. This area is known as the Slim Buttes area. Historically, the Battle of Slim Buttes was fought here.

Numerous Forest Service roads and campgrounds are located in this area. If you are looking for a treeless and Ponderosa tree type of forest ride consider traveling to South Dakota’s Custer National Forest.

This area is beautiful with its out of the usual features of trees, limestone capped sandstone cliffs and special heights. From the trails look down hundreds of feet to the vast, open and wildlife filled prairie. Pillars of rock shoot upward to create unusual visuals, tricking your eyes to see castles and other shapes. Buffalo graze in the distance. The trails run down the midrange of these uplifted buttes, and skirt the edges to provide special views of the South Dakota grassland area far below.
