Bogus System

  

The Bogus Trail System is enclosed by Bogus Jim Road to the north, Norris Peak Road to the east, Highway 44 to the south and Highway 385 to the west.  This is a very rough and rocky trail system containing roughly 34 miles of trail.  Technical motorcycle trails and “rock crawler” routes are the majority of this trail system.  These trails are open yearlong.  There is no developed trailhead for these trails, but there are a few popular access points with some parking.  Rock crawler trails are best accessed off Bogus Jim Road.  From Rapid City, travel West on highway 44 for approximately 11 miles, then turn north (right) onto Norris Peak Road at Johnson Siding.  Continue north for about 3 miles then turn west (left) onto Bogus Jim Road.  Travel for 2 miles until you come to Forest Road 201.1B on the south (left) side of the road.  If you continue for another 0.5 miles, Forest Road 448 accesses another route.
