What you'll do

There's 450 miles of hiking trails in the Black Hills. Choosing the best spots to see can be hard even for locals (my favorite places are a bit off-trail.) Depending on your level and capabilities we will choose the best experience for you and hike along granite boulders, creeks, and stunning views. We will identify endemic flowers, mushrooms, and talk about the history of the forest.

Bernardo was able to immerse us his knowledge of the Black Hills. He is a true adventurer, elaborating on his knowledge of plants and the history of the beautiful Hills. He takes time to learn about his guests needs, wants, skill level and offers many locations to choose from (hidden or public knowledge). I'd highly recommend his service over and over again. He is a world adventurer but it shows that the Black Hills has a special place in his heart.

What an absolutely amazing experience. He took us to a great location that suited my entry-level hiking skills. He was a wonderful source of information and was definitely the friendliest guide I’ve ever had. He also lets us bring our dogs, we would recommend this adventure to anyone. I will definitely be back for another hike with Bernardo!
