Mickelson Trail Trek

Sep 15, 2017 - Sep 17, 2017

Location: Mickelson Trail

Mickelson Trail is more than just a recreational trail; it's a trail of history. You have the opportunity to travel the same path as General George A. Custer, Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Potato Creek Johnny. Burlington Northern built this rail line over 100 years ago to accommodate the miners who had rushed to the area to pan for gold. In 1983, the rail line was abandoned and this incredible trail was envisioned. After years of planning, hard work, and determination the trail became a reality. In celebration of this reality, the third weekend of September finds hundreds of riders joining together in the Mickelson Trail Trek. This year's trail trek promises to be bigger and better than ever, offering something for everyone.
