Inclusief / Niet Inclusief – lodging

Day 1: Visit The Mammoth Site. Ride the Mickelson Trail from Edgemont to Pringle.

Meet in Rapid City in the morning. Our first stop is in Hot Springs at The Mammoth Site, an active paleontological dig where we pay a visit to the fossils of 61 woolly mammoths from the Ice Age. In Edgemont, at the south end of the Mickelson Trail, we hop on the bikes to ride the trail to the tiny town of Pringle (pop. 112). Return to the Red Rock River Resort in Hot Springs tonight, with time for a soak before walking to a privately hosted al fresco dinner at Silk Road.
Meals: Lunch and Dinner. Lodging: Red Rock River Resort
Level: easy
Distance: 33 miles (or less)
Elevation: +2026 ft / – 606 ft.

Day 2: Visit Wind Cave National Park and continue on the Mickelson Trail.

In the morning visit Wind Cave National Park, location of one of the longest and most complex caves in the world. The Lakota (Sioux), who live in the region, spoke of a hole that blew air, a place they consider sacred as the site where they first emerged from the underworld. In 1881, brothers Tom and Jesse Bingham heard wind rushing out from a 10-inch hole in the ground. According to the story, when Tom looked into the hole, the “wind” (exiting cave air) blew his hat off of his head. A mining company purchased the land but when it turned up no valuable mineral deposits the project turned to tourism. This was the first cave in the world to be designated a national park. Continue on the Mickelson Trail from Pringle to Legion Lake for the night.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Lodging: Legion Lake Lodge
Level: easy
Distance: 20 miles
Elevation: +1141 ft / – 987 ft.

Day 3: Ride to Crazy Horse Memorial before heading to Hill City.

This morning, ride the car-free trail to Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest mountain carving. Lakota leader Crazy Horse led a war party to victory against Federal Government troops at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. This fascinating memorial has been under construction since 1948 and receives no government funding. It’s so large that if Mt. Rushmore could be moved, it would fit inside Crazy Horse’s shoulder! Ride onward to Hill City. Hop in the van for the transfer up the hill to Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Sylvan Lake Lodge, Custer State Park’s ‘Crown Jewel’ and our home for the next two nights.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Lodging: Sylvan Lake Lodge
Level: easy
Distance: 16 miles
Elevation: +677 ft / – 986 ft.

Day 4: Hike Black Elk Peak this morning. Visit Mt. Rushmore this afternoon.

Hike Black Elk Peak this morning. At 7,242 feet, Black Elk Peak stands prominently as the highest point in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Standing sentinel over the Black Hills, Black Elk Peak is topped by a stone fire tower that provides a magnificent view of the surrounding landscape. This afternoon, explore Mt. Rushmore National Memorial. Gaze in awe at the 60-foot sculptures of four United States presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. Lunch and dinner are on your own today.
Meals: Breakfast. Lodging: Sylvan Lake Lodge
Level: easy, Elevation: +1384 ft / – 1380 ft.

Day 5: Ride from Hill City to the gold-rush-era town of Rochford and then on to Deadwood.

Ride from Hill City, the first settlement established in conjunction with the discovery of Black Hills gold in French Creek to tiny Rochford (pop. 26). It’s home to the Montezuma Mine, the Moonshine Gulch Saloon and the ‘Small of America.’ After lunch, bike or van onward to Deadwood, onetime home of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Plan for time to explore! Stay at the Deadwood Mountain Grand tonight.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Lodging: Deadwood Mountain Grand
Level: easy
Distance: 22 miles
Elevation: +1365 ft / – 1079 ft.

Day 6: Ride the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway.

Enjoy a leisurely ride through Spearfish Canyon this morning. Older than the Grand Canyon, the spectacular 1000-foot walls and limestone palisades of this creek-carved gorge offer some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Black Hills. Finish riding at the city park in Spearfish where we’ll celebrate the completion of the tour with lunch before returning to Rapid City in the afternoon.
Meals: Breakfast and Lunch.
Level: easy
Distance: 19 miles
Elevation: +255 ft / – 1911 ft.
