Trolley Rides Allow Those With Physical Limitations to Experience the Mickelson Trail near Deadwood, South Dakota

Posted on May 29, 2012

DEADWOOD, S.D. – Black Hills visitors with physical limitations have an opportunity to view the Mickelson Trail on Tuesday, June 5.

The trolley leaves the Deadwood Trailhead at 1 p.m. and tours the Mickelson Trail from Englewood to Rochford. To reserve a spot on the tour, call 605-578-1401.

Riders will learn about the history of the former railroad line and the inception of the trail. The rides are about four hours long.

“Trolley rides are an excellent way for people with physical limitations to get out and experience the Mickelson Trail,” said Dana Garry, park manager. “Everyone has a wonderful time and learns a little about the trail.”

Reservations are required. Each person reserving a space on the trolley will be required to have a handicapped parking permit. One assistant is allowed to accompany the person, if needed. The trolley has space available for up to two people who use wheelchairs. 

The trolley rides are a combined effort of the Hill City and Deadwood Chambers of Commerce, Neighborhood Housing, South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department, and the City of Deadwood.

For more information, contact the Mickelson Trail office at 605-584-3896.
