HIKING MOUNT ROOSEVELT

Mt. Roosevelt is the closest Forest Service-managed trail to the Lead/Deadwood area.  The hike is only about a half-mile round-trip to the tower but offers some of the most spectacular views in the Northern Hills.  Mt. Roosevelt road, parking area and trail are not maintained during winter conditions. 

 

Highlights 

  • Picnic Area

  • Beautiful fall colors

  • ½ mile trail with spectacular views of Bear Butte, Terry Peak and surrounding area

  • Historical lookout tower that is open to the public

More information about Mount Roosevelt along with trail information can be found at the US Forest Service site here.
