MT: Ft Meade Remount

August 19-20 near Sturgis, South Dakota

Ride the Ft Meade Recreation Area - Bear Butte State Park - The famous Centennial Trail

* The trails are a mixture of open grasslands, single and two track trails through forested areas and minimal road riding.
* There are some climbs and rocky areas so hoof protection is highly recommended.
* Water is abundant along the trails from natural water at creeks, as well as tanks that will be provided by ride management where needed.

RIDE CAMP: Camp area is primitive with large flat grassy areas, some gravel campsites and some wooded areas. Pit toilets and spigot water is available. Bring your own safe horse containment system as there are no high lines or corral. Dogs are welcome but since we are on public land they must be on leash.

WEED FREE HAY is required. If needing to purchase notify me in advance and I will have some available for purchase.

DIRECTIONS: Located at Alkali Creek Trail head. Take Exit 34 off I-90 this exit is 2 miles east of Sturgis and 24 Miles west of Rapid City. Go north off the exit, watch for ride signs here. Turn left @ the T, small white church to your right. Go across the cattle guard and go about 1/2 mile. Signs will be posted after Exit 34. Please let me know if you have a big rig so we can accommodate parking for you. Camp is right off I-90 with gas stations and grocery stores with 15 minutes. Cell service is available at camp.
