This section of the Mickelson Trail descends onto the prairie. The scenery drastically changes on this section of trail and is one of the longest stretches of trail. Beware of the goat head burrs that will flatten your tires (carry an extra inner tube or two). Edgemont is the southern terminus of the Mickelson Trail.

There is a per person user fee for the Mickelson Trail with passes available at all trail heads.

Access Info

Park at either the Minnekahta Trail Head located 1/2 mile east of the intersection of SD-89 & US-18 or at the Edgemont Trail Head located near the southern end of Main St. in Edgemont.
