This section of Trail 89 is one of the best sections of the Centennial Trail with close access to the Front Range of the Black Hills. The trail surface is sandy at times but is still excellent for all allowed users. The climbs can be a bit punchy with tight climbing turns and rapid elevation gain/loss. There are really fun descents going either direction. The scenery is excellent with stunning views of Bear Butte and the Black Hills plus views of the vast sea of prairie. Trail users are treated to both forested and prairie zones on this section of trail.
Park at either Ft. Meade Trail Head located on BLM Road just south of SD-34 or at Alkali Creek Trail Head about 1/2 mile east of I-90 at Exit 34 along BLM Road.
