Mountain Biking Prairie Trail, Custer State Park
#5 of 42 mountain bike trails in South Dakota
#1660 in the world
At the trailhead, head straight out. Once you hit the first fork, you may either
go left or right, I recommend going right because you'll do less climbing. You
will be climbing large rocks at the beginning and some areas are not rideable.
No different than many trails in this mountain area. This trail is much like
Centennial #89; rocky, big and steep climbs as well as fast descents, with your
occasional creek crossing. Very scenic and worth the run. Much shorter than
Centennial #89, this being 3 miles long. Keep distance from Buffalo.
