(S.D.)-Edgemont Trail Ride Offers Scenic Views
(Edgemont)-Memorial Day weekend is the indication of the transition from spring to summer, even if summer doesn’t officially begin until later in June, and many families plan activities over the three-day weekend. For families in the area looking for something fun to do, the Edgemont Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the 10th Annual Buena Vista Wagon Trail Ride Weekend, which will be held Saturday & Sunday, May 25th & 26th, beginning at 10:00 AM.
The Chamber encourages people to join them the day before the ride begins, with accommodations available at the Sunrise Ranch or at the Cowboy Motel in Edgemont. Visitors can also enjoy meals at any of the great restaurants in downtown Edgemont, relax at the TeddyRooseveltMemorial Park and stroll across the covered bridge or just enjoy the starry skies at the ranch and be ready for a great ride the next day.
People can bring their own horses or ride in one of the wagons provided for the ride. The trail ride features private Black Hills ranches and the scenic Cheyenne River northwest of Edgemont, a river traversing the plains along the edge of the Black Hills. The cost to ride in a wagon is $15 and includes lunch. Horseback riders will need to bring their own horses and may purchase lunch for $7. Horseback riders do not otherwise pay to attend. Wagons will roll at 10 a.m. sharp.
After the ride, participants can relax and enjoy a chuck wagon dinner and music social at Sunrise Ranch located six miles north of Edgemont. The cost is $10.
Sunrise Ranch also offers accommodations for both riders and their horses, but riders must provide their own feed, with a cost of $85 for the night. People can also bring their own campers, with a $15 hook up fee for the night.
Those bringing their own horses will be guided on a private tour of the ranch Sunday morning beginning at 8:30 a.m. The ranch offers breathtaking views, varied terrain and true western hospitality. Breakfast and lunch will be served, with a cost for the day of $25.
