The Camp 5 Motorized Trailhead is the most popular gateway to over 10 miles of rock-crawling, 4×4, and OHV routes in the Deadwood area. Many of these trails can be very challenging and test the limits of operators and machines. Several of the trails wind in and out of creek beds, through boulder fields, and up and down waterfalls as they navigate around steep canyons and pine forests. The trails south of the trailhead are popular with 4×4 clubs, rock-crawling enthusiasts, and adventure-seekers throughout the region. The two trails to the west of the trailhead (Trails 8041 and 8040) are popular OHV routes that are enjoyed by ATV riders. Trails are open from May 15 “ Dec 15.
