Completed the trail today. Lein Quarry to Edgemont South Dakota. Fall is in the air. Snow last week, trees changing. Nice day on the trail.

Southbound Custer to Lein Quarry , south of Pringle, Sd. Trail is in great shape. Plenty of eye candy along the way. Definitely less riders on the south side of the Black Hills.

This has been my favorite section of this trail so far. Very remote, great scenery. The first four miles was uphill. Once past that, we were cruisin. This was literally the highpoint of this trail 6480'. Just south of this point was a rest area trailhead "Dumont". There is a hiker/biker cabin for shelter with picnic tables if caught in inclement weather. Also a bike station with air and a variety of tools if needed, very traveler friendly. Pictures document side adventures. Segments 4 -6 southbound. Water available here also.

Completed another section of this trail. It's in amazing shape and goes into the Black Hills backcountry.
