Need to Know

Turn off 1806 on road parallel to the emergency spill way, go all the way to the end, and you'll see the trail on right. Trail can be un-rideable after rain. Keep your eye out for snakes.

Description

Climbs are short and punchy with amazing views overlooking Lake Oahe. Not an extremely technical trail, however, being new and limited use so far has not allowed the ground to settle out the natural trail. The trail is in Phase II with additional trails planned. It is a loop style trail with multiple connector points and can be ridden in any direction rider shall choose.

Oahe Wheelmen Cycling Club was given access by Army Corps of Engineers to begin constructing multi use (non horse) trails in the emergency spillway area of lake Oahe. This is a 100% voluntary trail system beginning in 2018 with goals of having 5-10 miles of singletrack loop style riding.
