The Mickelson Train is a great way to see the Black Hills and one of our favorite things about living there. Well maintained, readily accessible and very inexpensive, the Mickelson Trail offers 114 miles (give or take a few) miles of riding and hiking throughout the year. Snowmobiles are allowed on limited sections January through March but otherwise, motorized vehicles are not permitted. It's long enough that as a general rule you are alone to enjoy the scenery. There is water available and bathroom facilities at a number of the trailheads but not all. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours or a couple of days.
