A History Of The Mickelson Trail

Guy Edwards was a leader early in the development of the Mickelson Trail. He knew the people and the politics involved. The Parks and Wildlife Foundation raises funds for Mickelson Trail and is currently raising funds to do bridge repairs on the trail. "Piece of Heaven: A Brief History of the Mickelson Trail" tells the story of the development of the Mickelson Trail, from the end of its useful life as a rail corridor through the tough legal battles that put the land in public hands, to the ongoing work of promoting and maintaining what many call a world-class recreational trail. Dedicated in 1998, the George S. Mickelson Trail runs 109 miles through the very heart of the Black Hills. "Piece of Heaven: A Brief History of the Mickelson Trail" airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. Central on SDPB-TV. Guy Edwards and Wayne Winter, Executive Director of the Parks and Wildlife Foundation, discussed the history and stories of the Mickelson Trail.
