(S.D.)-Snowshoe Hikes Offered In Black Hills

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 01/03/2013 08:02 AM

     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The George S. Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills will host three snowshoe hikes this winter.
     Hikes will be held at 1 p.m. MST on Saturday and Jan. 19, with both starting at the Englewood trailhead. The final hike will be held at 1 p.m. on Feb. 2, with the location to be determined later.
     Staff at the Black Hills Trails Office will teach basic snowshoeing skills while leading a nature walk along the trail.
     Mickelson Trail manager Dana Garry says the office has a limited number of snowshoes available for those taking part in the hikes, so people should sign up early to make sure they get a pair of snowshoes.
     Garry says snowshoes are available for checkout any time, not just during guided hikes.
