Overview

Ride 5 days on this beautiful rail-to-trail plus some small roads in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This 180 mile ride will take you on through the Black Hills and onto the Mickelson trail which is one of the nation’s most scenic, historic and memorable cycling adventures. The converted “Rail to Trail” once provided the booming “Wild West” mining community of Deadwood with a means to transport ore, supplies and people along its rugged path. As you cycle this well maintained, but challenging trail, you will discover unrivaled natural beauty, geologic wonders and an abundance of wildlife in combination with historic ghost towns, train trestles, bridges and tunnels, reminders of a bygone era. This is 5 day end to end tour on the Mickelson Trail and small roads is considered solidly intermediate due to long continuous grades, higher elevations and road traffic. You will spend 4 nights on the trail in both historic hotels and other lodging on the trail and Rapid City. All lodging is first class with beautiful views and breakfast available at some destinations. Your luggage will be moved each day to the next lodging location.
