Located on Second Street by the Mickelson Trailhead and the Edgemont City Park, the Trails, Trains, and Pioneers Museum houses an outstanding number of artifacts from the history of the Edgemont area. Visitors can learn about the community’s ranching history, daily life, past industrial pursuits, geology, and so much more.
The community was started as a stopping place for the early railroads which today are still an important part of the community’s character.
Many trails have passed by, but today the Mickelson Trail is an important piece of the community’s fabric. Pioneers in the area settled on ranches and made a living off the land, as their descendants today continue the heritage.
Learn about the early inhabitants of the area who left their marks in the form of rock art found in surrounding canyons, etched into the beautiful red rocks.
The 109-mile Mickelson Trail follows the former Burlington Northern rail corridor from Edgemont to Deadwood. With its gentle grade and easy access, the trail is enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities for a variety of activities, including bicycling, hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.
Cost: $3 for a day pass or $15 for an annual pass
