Black Hills - The Rock Maze

Kameron's parents joined us on this adventure in the Black Hills. We took a drive on Nemo Road and discovered the Rock Maze. This is a beautiful place to walk, hike, and breathe in the fresh air.

The Rock Maze isn't an official maze. It is not man made. It is not a tourist trap.
The Rock Maze is good, old-fashioned, natural, God-made fun. It is a formation of rocks jutting up from the earth in a maze-like fashion. You can explore and get lost in the maze, or wander around on the rocks above the maze. We did a little bit of both.
Be aware! There is a low hanging electrical wire nearby. We had some fun with these pictures, but we do no know how dangerous it is. Be careful, but have fun!

The Rock Maze is a great place to "boulder." Bouldering is very similar to rock climbing, but without the use of ropes. A mattress is usually set-up below the climber to catch her if she falls. We ran inter a woman who was doing some solo bouldering. Made us want to go out and buy some rock climbing shoes!

This was a great day in the Hills with our family. I encourage you to come out to the Rock Maze in the Black Hills. If that isn't an option for you, then simply go outside in your own area & explore!
Have you ever been to the rock maze? How about the Black Hills? You should come out for a visit.

Here are some of our other Black Hills adventures:
My solo hike up to Harney Peak
Our Getaway in a Cabin in the Woods
Glass Blowing in Deadwood


  1. This looks like so much fun! I've never been to a rock maze, but it sounds and looks really fun. If I make it out to SD, I'll definitely have to visit this!

  2. That looks like a perfect place to spend a day outdoors!

  3. I had never been to one either! If you ever get to SD, I will have lots of fun activities to suggest for you!

  4. Isn't it cool what we can find in nature?
