Trail Description
About this trail
This island has more trees than anyplace else in the area. The trails here are a series of singletracks that cut narrow swaths thru the dense forest.The climbing is non existant,biggest climb is about 8 foot.What this trail has to offer is a slice of singletrack solitude in the heart of central South Dakota.Quiet secluded beaches practicly downtown.The terrain is packed sand to sandy soil.The trail swallows water like a drunk hooker at a sailor convention,you can ride in the wettest of weather here.I ride here every chance I get and I love the place.I suggest it to anyone needing to stretch your legs or get that "bike fix" in when you pass thru Pierre.

Review: Rode on tandem bike a day earlier and had a great time! Just a little bit challenging on some area where it has sharp curve trail.

Review: A few people on trail to begin, then clear sailing. A bit technical at times through the trees. Very enjoyable.

Review: When I lived in Pierre a couple of years ago this was pretty much the only place to ride. A forest oasis in the middle of the prairie. No climbs or obstacle to really speak of besides a few roots and some patches of sand. The single track does have a nice flow and is a good way to get out and stretch your legs in an otherwise mtb trail desert. There are a couple of options for loops with singletrack and some double. Overall a really nice trail considering the area.

Review: Not much here either in the way of mileage or variety, but its worth a stop if you're in the area for a nice easy spin close to town.

Review: It's a quite scenery ride which you could run by some deer or some wildlife animals and nice river view when ride by edge of island. It's beginner level with little grade. I rode there quite a lot and sometime I experienced something mysterious at the island which add to fun list about LaFramboise!
