Event Details

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. The third weekend in September finds hundreds of riders joining together in the Mickelson Trail Trek. This year's Trail Trek promises to be bigger and better than ever, offering something for everyone.

The Trail is a former railroad bed that has been resurfaced with crushed limestone. Due to moisture, some parts of the trail may be softer than others, which can make pedaling more difficult in spots. A mountain bike is by far the bicycle of choice. A road bike with narrow tires will not work on much of the surface.

The registration fee for the 3-day ride entitles riders to full amenities during the Trek, including an annual trail pass, shuttle service, merchandise (for those that purchase the option), refreshments, 2 noon meals, one evening meal and 5 snacks.

Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
