Mickelson Trail Trek
September 14, 2018
An event every day that begins at 12:00 AM, repeating until September 16, 2018
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, the rail line was abandoned and this incredible trail was envisioned. After years of planning, hard work, and determination the trail became a reality.
In celebration of this reality, 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 Friday, Saturday and Sunday 3-day ride covers almost the entire trail. Registration fee includes- trail pass, shuttle service, refreshments, 6 snacks and 3 meals and a voucher for dinner in Hill City or Custer.
