Summer Trek 2021
South Dakota's George S. Mickelson Trail is more than just a recreation Trail; it's a trail of history.
You have the opportunity to travel the same path as General George A. Custer, Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Potato Creek Johnny.
Burlington Northern built this rail line over 100 years ago to accommodate the miners who had rushed to the area to pan for gold. In 1983, rail travel ceased and this incredible trail was envisioned. After years of planning, hard work, and determination the trail became a reality.
Riders can enjoy the beauty of the heart of the Black Hills as they travel through the scenic valleys, old railroad tunnels, and historic mining towns.
The registration fee for the 3-day ride entitles riders to full amenities during the Mickelson Trail Summer Trek, including an annual trail pass, shuttle service, merchandise, refreshments, 3 meals and 6 snacks. Registration packets and additional ride information will be distributed either Monday at Early Bird Check- In or on Tuesday morning.
