BIKING, HIKING, HORSEBACK RIDING, OFF HIGHWAY VEHICLE
Riley Hill Trailhead offers extensive access to a wide variety of trails from just south of Roubaix Lake Recreation Area to north of Pactola Reservoir. Trails range from old logging roads for a peaceful OHV ride, to narrow single track for the more adventurous, and have a wide variety in-between. This series of trails has something for almost everyone.
Access the Riley Hill Trailhead from Deadwood, via US Highway 385 south. Travel on US 385 S for 19.5 miles to Rochford Road, turning west (right). Proceed approximately 4.1 miles west towards Rochford, SD. After approximately 4.1 miles turn north (right) on Trail 8214. There are signs along Rochford Road announcing “Riley Hill Trailhead” just before arriving at Trail 8214. After turning on the trail, the trailhead is 100 yards ahead. The Forest Service plans developing the trailhead in 2017, yet it is available for current use.
