Our area is known for our awesome multi-use trails, and the Mickelson Trail and Centennial Trail are among the best! Ride or hike the trails through old ghost towns, railroad tunnels and along a gorgeous creek! We can help you with maps and directions if you would like.
Mountain biking is growing fast in the Black Hills, thanks to almost 6,000 miles of fire trails, logging roads and abandoned railroad grades that crisscross the back country ridges, wind down canyons and climb to mountain tops. The 111-mile Centennial Trail is an acclaimed and challenging single-track ride.

Another popular route is the 109-mile George S. Mickelson Trail that stretches from Deadwood to Edgemont. Fourteen trailheads and parking areas along the way provide easy access to the 10-foot-wide, crushed limestone path that traverses the Black Hills’ back country through prairie and mountains, aspen-lined creeks, pine forests and high-country meadows. You might even catch a glimpse of some native wildlife along the way.
