About Cliffs of Dune:

The Cliffs of Dune is a relatively unvisited and undeveloped climbing area on Norris Peak Road, about 8-10 miles west of Rapid City.
Nearest town or city: Rapid City
Directions: Drive west out of Rapid City on Nemo Road and turn left after a few miles on Norris Peak Road (the road connecting Nemo Road and Rimrock Highway). At exactly 1.1 miles you'll come to a stretch in the road, and you'll see a small/medium sized boulder on the left. Pull off here and park on the shoulder. From the boulder walk straight into the woods and up the hill until you come to one of many deer trails. Please use the deer trails to switchback up the hill, rather than soldiering your way straight up. This will minimize erosion in the area. It only takes about 5 minutes to hike to the base of the cliffs. Once at the base, the best way to get on top is to turn left and after a short ways you'll see an easy third-fourth class scramble to the top.
