Mickelson Trail Extension from Hill City to Mount Rushmore

The concept of a rugged, scenic bike and hiking trail from near Hill City to theMt. Rushmore National Monument has excited outdoor lovers for many years. A multitude of steps have been taken to bring this dream closer to reality.

A study of potential routes has been completed and a preferred route has been selected. Thanks to private donations and other funds, several required studies are being conducted to prepare for this trail extension. Construction may begin as early as 2019 or 2020. Major donations will be required to finance this construction and efforts to raise these funds will likely begin in 2018.
