MUNI in the Black Hills

MUNI in the Black Hills

Post by beelzebub of balanc » Wed, 13 Aug 2003 01:23:32


Next July we will be hosting a Muni Weekend in the Black Hills of South
Dakota. We'll be staying at Trout Haven, just across the street from a
great entrance to the Centenial Trail.

Trout Haven provides the option of cheap cabins ($75 per cabin) or
camping. They have a trout pond, restaurant, and small store on the
property.

The Centenial Trail is one of the premier mountain bike trails in the
nation. It's a mix of single and double track that covers over 100
miles. We are exploring it, and we'll post photos soon.

Here is a link to the Centenial Trail:

I will get you more info as the date gets closer. We aren't looking for
a giant rally--20 to 40 riders would be plenty.

Thanks,

Definitely pick a date!

We've already pencilled in Yellowstone for next Summer, what's another
state when you're that far anyway.

When choosing dates watch out for UNICON, which will start on July 23
(plus travel time to Japan). NAUCC dates are as yet unknown.

So David Maxfield is now in Mitchell, SD. How do you like it?

I can't make it and certainly couldn't do it even if I could make it,
but can't help wondering if there isn't a Beatles song hiding in
there.

Have fun :)

Here are some photos from our ride in the Black Hills last weekend. I'm
riding with my nephew, PJ.

I can't figure out the photo thing. I attach images, but they never
appear.

If you are looking for a ride near to Spearfish, let me recommend Crow
Peak. I haven't done it yet, but it sounds very good. It's a climb up,
followed by a technical ride down.

You climb 1600 feet in 3.5 miles. The top is rocky and steep--sounds
like a fun ride down. The trailhead is 4 miles south of Spearfish on the
Higgins Gultch Road (BHNF Road 214). Avoid late afternoon if it looks
like thunderclouds--the lightening up there is dangerous.

An easier variety of trails would be the Little Spearfish, Rimrock, and
Old Baldy trails. These are 16 miles southwest of Spearfish.

From Cheyenne Crossing drive 5.5 miles north on US 14A. Turn left onto
BHNF Road 222 and drive 4.8 miles to the trailhead, which is located
just beyond Timon Campground.

If you do any of these rides, then be sure to give us a report. There
are hundreds of miles of trails in the Black Hills, and I want to make
sure we pick the best.

You're probably clicking on the "Preview Reply" button before submitting
your post.  An unfortunate side-effect of the Preview Reply button is
that it also removes the attached picture from the post.

Write your post, attach your JPG file to the post, and then submit the
reply without doing a preview.  Should work.

Hey "B.O.B" where do you ride in up there? I am possibly going to
SpearFish at the end of the month and was considering taking the
Muni.....

Those look like nice rides!  I doubt I'd be able to make it, but I saw
an ad for South Dakota the other day on T.V. and was thinking that it
looked like a nice place to MUni.
