Skyline Drive & Wilderness Area

This beautiful drive has one of the best views of Rapid City. The road stretches about two miles long and gives countless scenic views of our city. Pull over at any of the parking locations to get a great view and possibly a great hike! At over 150 acres, the Skyline Wilderness Area trails can be reached from several different trailheads, including Quincy Street on the north, Flormann Street near the center portion, and Tower Road from the south.  Depending on which trail you’re on, these paths are quieter than the ones on M-Hill as they tend to be a bit more secluded.  They’re relatively level single-tracks as Skyline Drive encompasses a highland area on the top of the hillside.  These trails also offer stunning views of town and the surrounding countryside.
