Black Hills Riding Permits

If you plan to ride on the Black Hills Forest trail system you will need a 2014 USFS Black Hills Trail Permit.

Permits will be available at a rally  in Nemo, however you may also obtain an annual permit in advance at

We suggust you just get an annual permit since it is only costs $5 more than a temporary permit.

Also, at this time it is possible to obtain a temporary road permit from the state of South Dakota that will allow you to operate your ATV on most state roads for a period of 15 days.  These permits are issued by county treasurers under the following conditions:

1. ATVs and UTVs must have a horn, a rear view mirror and be at least 250 cc in engine displacement.
2. Permits are issued for a period of 5 to 15 days at a cost of $1 per day
3. Applicants must be in possession of either a valid title or bill of sale
4. Only one permit per vehicle per year may be issued.
