Slow/moderate Rolling, flat land trail with a mix of single track/atv trail... this trail needs obstacles & stuff like that to make it fun.

Customer Service

Out of the parking lot keep to the left. Take a left on a single track and hug the north shoreline as far as you can. This will put you out into an open field keep left and head to the southeast corner of the island where you will hit another trailhead of single track which will eventually take you back to the parking lot.

Near the dam off of 1806 go past the rifle range to a dirt road that wraps around the rifle range and archery range. This so far is the best little strech in pierre/fort pierre.

This is a fun little trail with no climbs to speak of but has some fairly technical stuff through the trees.The island is small so you can jump on any chunk of single track and have fun and not worry about getting too lost.I reccomend this trail to anyone who is passing through Pierre with a mountain bike.

Customer Service

Start at the restrooms and go right towards the river. From there follow it along the edge to the open meadow and just keep going clockways.

ride among cottonwoods, russian olives and cedar, or break out and ride along the meadow in the middle of the island. Round trip from my door is 8.4 miles. Fine sand, small hills, deer and turkey. Oasis in the middle of treeless plain, within 2 miles of any point in Pierre.

Customer Service

West on Poplar street, across causeway, in through gate, hard left past trees, follow singletrack along lake, then in to cut main trail, left to end of island, then left along river side. Many trails branch off and return. Island trail is a bit technical for sedentary folk, but it's a great walk also, with benches, markers and a viewing deck over a cattail marsh on the river side.

Lewis and Clark trail starts at Farm Island and winds along river, crosses on bridge, and ends up at Oahe Dam 12 miles later. Flat, but if you want to climb there are many bluffs, breaks and buttes with reasonable shoulders on the roads.

Being from the Black Hills and used to riding at elevation and enjoying the hills, it was not a technical ride by any means. It does allow you the oppertunity to keep your bike in your high rings and pedal like crazy! Keep in mind you are likely to encounter many hikers on this flat trail, so be catious! There are one or two technical corners in the trees, so watch out for sand in the trees which can throw you off your bike. If passing through Pierre, it's a good ride to get out and get the blood flowing.

Customer Service

The route you chose does not matter, going left or right at trial head will give you the same ride.

There are a couple of short game trails around the dam, that do offer some short climbs.

I stumbled across a couple miles of new trail that was added over the winter.There has always been a great number of game trails leading off of the main trails.Someone,and a local shreader by the name of Judge Judy,(but don't worry shes nothin like the famous judge on TV,this ones cool),have cleared a few new miles of new trail.The trail is a little vague but well marked with ribbon and paint.It is all singletrack leading thru demse forest,nice addition to the existing system of trails.There are a few log crossings.Just do-able and fun to cross.I hope they don't get carried away with the saws.

Customer Service

break right at the picnic area,and follow the doubletrack into the forest past the info board and map.

The new trail needs ridden.It is still new and slow due to the leaves and vegetation.The existing trails are fast and fun.Semi-slicks with slime tubes work great here.
