Skyline Wilderness Park

Organization: Black Hills Mountain Bike Association

Year: 2010

Amount: $5,000

Status: Project complete

Type: Mountain bike project

Address: Skyline Wilderness Park, Rapid City, SD

Our $5,000 grant helped the Black Hills Mountain Bike Association (BHMBA) build 10 miles of singletrack at Skyline Wilderness Park in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota. This gateway trail system brings recreation right to the community's doorstep and provides the city's Parks Department with a central venue to host classes and clinics for mountain bikers of all abilities. It also complements other BHMBA efforts, including the Black Hills Dirt Jump Park and several new and proposed trail systems-all of which contribute to Rapid City's concerted effort to be a premier destination for mountain biking. Our funding helped leverage a Recreational Trails Program grant for this project, which has received significant city funding and local support.
