Trail Description Travel parts of the Deadwood Trail as you trail ride over 20,000 plus acres of beautiful Cheyenne River breaks. Cedar trees, shale banks, river and creek crossings, 350 foot climb to highest point. Can see Black Hills and Bear Butte. We are within a hour and a half from the Black Hills and 30 minutes from Badlands National Park.  Cow Creek Ranch is 22 miles from I90 and 17 miles from a mail box but we feel like that is great thing and not a bad thing .
