Biking South Dakota’s Black Hills

7 of 12

Operator: Austin-Lehman
Adventures

The Great Plains are all about big skies and bison. And on this trip you’ll experience
both. You’ll cycle south from Rapid City across the Mickelson Trail’s converted
railroad bed, explore Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monument, then head to Custer State Park,
where the towering granite spires and grasslands are a refuge for 1,500 bison. The fall frequently
brings wonderful Indian summer weather, plus it’s breeding season, so you can expect to see
some very active wildlife. After some time unwinding at the State Game Lodge, you bike into ranch
country, stopping to explore Wind Cave National Park’s labyrinthine underground mazes or get
a massage at the Red Rock River Resort
& Spa
.

Cost: $1,998 double occupancy, six days.
