The following is a list and description of some of our most popular attractions but it is by no means a complete list of adventurous opportunities. To find those you need to come see them for yourself. 11LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 Bicycling The Mickelson Trail is the most popular biking trail in Lead as it offers a full experience of all the outdoor splendor of the Northern Black Hills. Local and visiting bikers alike enjoy riding for many miles watching a plethora of wildlife and filling up with the beauty of their surroundings. Visitors can start at the Lead trailhead or just take off right outside their hotel on the trail. From there bicyclists can take on the challenging 109-mile trail or just enjoy small parts of it. Because the trail was once a railroad the steepest grade is only about 4 percent making it very family friendly. Some water stations are available throughout the trail in the summer but bicyclists are encouraged to bring their own water and snacks... and cameras Skiing Just outside of Lead are the only two ski areas in the Black Hills. Terry Peak Ski Area features 29 runs and four chairlifts three of which are comfortable high peak quad chairlifts. Terry Peak a full service ski area also offers convenient ski and snowboard rentals as well as a ski school for all ages. Younger skiers can learn how to get down the hill when their parents drop them off at the Snow Puppies ski school. There children who are 4 to 5 years old can play with their peers and learn to ski while mom and dad enjoy some time on the slopes. If a terrain park is more your style for burning down the runs Terry Peak has you covered for that as well. No matter how you choose to get down the hill at the end of the day the ski area features drinks snacks and meals at the Dark Horse Saloon and the Main Lodge. Terry Peak is also expanding in the near future look online for the Terry Peak Wharf Expansion video and get excited about this great project Downtown Lead is a mere five minutes away from Deer Mountain Ski Resort.

Carlson said the new interpretive center complements existing tours of the facility that are available for visitors. Currently visitors are invited to take advantage of scheduled tours to see the entire historic building learn about restoration efforts and experience the acoustics ofthe theater. The interpretive center is one more step toward completely restoring the opera house theater back to its original grandeur.

Sarah says the view from Moses Hill one of many off-roading trails the Carlsons have visited has the appearance of being the very top of the beautiful Black Hills with vistas and vegetation varieties stretching for miles. From steep terrain that seems impossible to pass to the variety of scenery and foliage to the many different kinds of people they meet while Jeeping the Carlsons say Lead is the place to be for those who enjoy off-road recreation. Its also a place where off-roaders are good responsible stewards of the land. The couple is proud to be part of Jeep Jamboree USA and Black Hills Jeeps both organizations that work to promote Jeeping and off-road recreation within the context of trail and land preservation. We want to leave things as we found them Richard said. We even have people who pick up litter on the trails. These are the people who make sure the trails are clear. Off-road Jeeping opportunities in the Black Hills truly give anyone access to the beautiful splendor Lead has to offer outdoors. Some trails are open year-round weather permitting while other trails are only open from May 15 to Dec. 15. Additionally Richard said some of the trails require a permit with annual passes available for purchase from 25LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 the U.S. Forest Service for 25 and weekly passes available for 20. Jeeping gives people who may not be able to hike or bike the opportunity to get out and see the back country of the Hills. There are folks that want to enjoy those things as much as the next person Richard said. Not that a short hike is impossible for everybody but it is impossible for some people. Motorized recreation gives access to everybody. Though there are a plethora of Jeep and off-road vehicle trails in and around the Lead area Sarah said her favorite trail is Moses Hill located east of Galena halfway between Galena and Vanocker Canyon Road. Its the most picturesque spot I know Sarah said. There is a thick outcropping of rock and that is why it is called Moses Hill. When you get there you are going at such a grade that you feel like you are just going to fall off the back. But your Jeep just keeps on going and you park on a level space and walk to the rock. All of the photos you take of people up there it looks like you are on top of the Black Hills. In addition to Leads back country the Carlsons said they also enjoy the hospitality of Lead people and they frequently show visitors the warmth and beauty of the people and the town they are proud to call home. LEFT Sarah and Richard Carlson and their trusty Wrangler. ABOVE Richard Carlson leads a group of Jeeps on a trail in the Camp 5 area near Galena just outside of Lead. LIVING AND BREATHING THE OUTDOORS R Living in a tiny little house in the heart of the Northern Black Hills is Nick Bennetts version of heaven. And by tiny we mean that the director of Leads Handley Recreation Center has a dwelling that is 8-feet by 20-feet surrounded by trees foliage and wildlife. It is just big enough to lay his head at night and maybe cook a meal or two. Thats perfect for Nick as he would rather stretch out over the 8426 square miles that is the Black Hills. Specifically hes in love with the outdoors that surround Lead. I do about everything you can do in the Black Hills Nick said as he watched balls bouncing and children playing at the Handley Rec Center. There is world-class fly fishing. The skiing both downhill and cross country is amazing. In the summertime I do all the climbing in the Canyon. Snowshoeing in the wintertime is awesome. But if Nick has to choose one outdoor activity as his favorite he goes with one that he can do 365 days a year fly fishing. Its a very interactive process and its always a puzzle trying to figure out what the fish are biting on and what hatches are happening. The Canyon gets fished pretty heavily so it requires a little more cunning. Its a little harder. There is more variety than anywhere else. As far as variety goes Nick said thats the defining characteristic for the Black Hills as a whole. The thing about the Black Hills is it always feels like you can go anywhere and never run into anybody Nicksaid.Thatsamazing.Itsarelativelypopulated area but you never see anyone else when youre out doing this stuff. For maximum variety Nick recommends Annie Creek trail and falls. Hikers can find Annie Creek when they take the first right past Elmore driving north into Spearfish Canyon from Cheyenne Crossing. He also recommends a call to the Black Hills Trail Office where visitors and locals alike can get information about outdoor activities and even borrow a pair of snowshoes for the day. FAMILY-FRIENDLY ADVENTURES WITH A TODDLER S kiing at Terry Peak has been part of Matt Kleins life since he was 2 years old and he is passing the tradition of Leads outdoors on to his wife Kayla and 3-year old son Desmond. We started Desmond on skis at 2-years old Matt said. This is his second year and hes got his ski legs on him. Terry Peak Ski Area features many amenities for tikes and children that make skiing a very family- friendly adventure. From the covered magic carpet that transports toddlers up the bunny hill to the ski lessons instructors offered for the older kids to the challenging runs for the more experienced skiers there is really something for everyone on the slopes of Lead. With a summit of 7100 feet Terry Peak offers the highest lift service between the Rocky Mountains and the Swiss Alps. Matt said Terry Peak has low lift lines and very short commutes. There is also a camaraderie at Terry Peak that simply cant be beat. Its your backyard play area but everybody is going and everyone is friendly Matt said. Its a beautiful thing Its very sincere and down to earth a hometown feeling when youre there For Kayla who claims summer as her favorite season for outdoor recreation the same can be said of biking on the Mickelson Trail. Year-round recreation in Lead is abundant beautiful and filled with smiling faces. Nothing compares to being in the Hills Kayla said. The Mickelson Trail is just amazing. Having that scenery and having it be safe. You feel like youre on an adventure but youre still close to town. In the summertime two of Matts favorite trails are the Sugar Loaf Trailhead of the Mickelson Trail ABOVE Nick Bennet and some friends from the Handley Recreation Center enjoying the Northern Black Hills winter. RIGHT PAGE The Klein family at the bottom of their beloved slopes at Terry Peak Ski Area. THIS IS MY LEAD 27LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 where he says locals can go on a nice hike to feel immersed in the Black Hills while staying close to town. He also recommends taking a trek up Terry Peak Summit Road where a lookout tower gives a sprawling view of Lead and the Black Hills. But the best part about outdoor recreation in Lead the Kleins said is that it is family-friendly and beautiful. For me its the best of both worlds Kayla said of living and playing in Lead. Its everything packed into one beautiful town. Anywhere you go you find someone you know. Its a friendly atmosphere. Its gorgeous. Just the view from our backyard we can just sit out there and look at it all day. For the average visitor Kayla said Lead can also be the perfect vacation spot because of its genuine real-life appeal. Its not overdone she said. Its economical. Its real. The things you can get here youre not going to get anywhere else. Even when it comes to the restaurants or the hand-crafted beer. Its very unique. There are a ton of different places to discover Matt said. I would suggest to just explore the area. Its a hidden gem laden with adventure. BIKING THE MICKELSON TRAIL W hen it comes to biking on a trail there is no place better than the Mickelson according to Robert and Deborah Thorp. Every other place weve gone to Montana New Mexico Colorado Missouri and Minnesota there is nowhere near as nice of a trail as what we have right here Robert said. He was referring to the mix of steep and level grades beautiful vistas diverse scenery and wildlife the couple has encountered while riding the 109-mile long trail. The couple has ridden the entire trail in 20-30 mile spurts. But their favorite section of the Mickelson Trail is just outside of Lead along Highway 85 the Sugarloaf Trailhead. Its close to home but it isveryscenic and beautiful Robert said. You go up a steep grade about eight- tenths of a mile and then it kind of levels off. Theres no traffic and the scenery is always different. Deborah who used to ride between 18-20 miles a day before she started having knee problems now enjoys the Mickelson Trail using a three-wheeled recumbent bike two wheels in front and one in the back. CONTINUED PAGE 22 442004.4N 1035024.4W HOT TIP Both ski resorts websites have easily accessible reports about snow conditions trails open and lifts in operation. Check them out before heading for the slopes THIS IS MY LEAD Its just so nice to be out in the nature The Mickelson Trail is amazing Oh my gosh we are so lucky to have that trail here she said. When the Thorps finish riding on the Mickelson Trail they said they really enjoy having lunch at the Sled Haus or at Cheyenne Crossing along Highway 85. They also enjoy occasionally meeting their now- grown children at Dakota Shivers Brewing on Main Street in Lead. They also love taking in special events at the All In One Events Center also on Leads Main Street. FILLING THE SENSES WITH BEAUTY Jacque Fuller cant decide if the smell of the Black Hills is butterscotch or vanilla. But she knows that the smells sights sounds and feel of Lead on the Mickelson Trail fill her senses with a freshness serenity and beauty that she never tires of. When we moved to the Black Hills we had two small children Jacque said. For years when we would travel with the kids upon returning they would roll down the windows to smell the Black Hills. Its mostly in the morning or later in the evening when it starts to cool down that you get that unique refreshing smell. Jacque who tries to bike on the Mickelson Trail at least four or five times a week said she never tires LEFT Robert Thorp on the Mickelson Trail. of the scenery and filling her senses with all the beauty Lead has to offer. While bicycling on the Mickelson Trail is something Jacque frequently enjoys there are many other outdoor activities that keep her in shape and stress free. Just taking a walk around Lead taking in the uniqueness of the town is enough to calm the senses she said. Driving in Lead doesnt give you an appreciation for the community Jacque said. There are some very nice postage stamp sized yards that are well cared for. In the winter when the snow is covering things its like a little European village. Another destination Jacque enjoys is taking walks through Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary located just outside of Lead on Juso Ranch Road. Though Pathways is only open for seasonal hours in the summer and early Fall it is a popular place for meditation and appreciation for the beauty of the Black Hills. When Jacque is not walking or biking she also enjoys golfing at Lead Country Club where there are no mosquitoes and the climate is comfortable especially if you throw on a sweatshirt. Its pretty out there Jacque said. If youre playing poorly you can just enjoy the scenery. When asked about any special memories she may have from her outdoor adventures Jacque paused a long moment before exclaiming theyre all special. I never forget what a very special marvelous place we live in. Theyre doing a nice job on the deer hunting also. There are some nice opportunities for big deer. Snowmobiling is another family recreational activity that Ron said is new to him. Four years ago he began to take his now 18-year old son out to experience the speed of snowmobiles in some of the most beautiful country of the Black Hills He said he most enjoys snowmobiling on Elk Mountain north of Terry Peak in the backcountry where the powder just goes on for miles. When youre in the deep powder its like youre in a boat on water Ron said. Its very smooth. You can carve some nice turns. Its usually untouched. You dont bump into other snowmobilers. Its very peaceful and very enjoyable to be out with your family on occasions like that. The best part about snowmobiling in the Lead area is the close proximity to the trails Ron said. I can leave from my house and in five minutes I can have some of the best back country powder sledding anywhere in the Black Hills he said. Thats really nice. These people who want to travel out and do vacation weekends if they come to Lead they dont even have to trailer their sleds anywhere. You can travel right from Lead on the Mickelson Trail and it takes you out on the trail system. 29LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 RIGHT Lead is a paradise for snowmobilers according to Ron Everett... and everyone else WORK AND PLAY 5 MINUTES AWAY FROM HOME W hen it comes to outdoor recreation in Lead Ron Everett loves it all. From hunting and fishing to gliding across fresh powder in the back country on his snowmobile Ron thrives on having some of the best outdoor recreation right outside his door. You can work play and raise a family all within five minutes of your home Ron said of his reasons for loving Lead. Ron who moved to Lead in 1982 from Montana knows a thing or two about quality outdoor recreation. The hunting is especially superb. The Game Fish Parks have done a great job in managing the elk herd he said. If youre from Montana Wyoming or Colorado and some of the big elk hunting states you spend almost a lifetime trying to shoot a bull elk that is 320 or above. In South Dakota it takes you awhile to get a tag but youre almost assured to get a record class bull. It is wonderful to look forward to a good elk hunt.

At least thats been the Lead experience for Dustin and Jamie Heupel business owners and philanthropists in Lead. Everything I enjoy is real close Dustin said.

Here you can work and play and have time for all of it. Avid ATV riders Dustin and Jamie said they love to explore the back country of Lead where they find incredible vistas unique vegetation little pieces of history and even an occasional mine shaft. There is an old hut out there that has logs chinked with mud Dustin said. Its neat to see some of that old stuff. One of Jamies favorite rides is up to the fire lookout tower on Terry Peak where she said visitors can see five states. I love being in the mountains Jamie said. You just see it forever and ever she said. Lead has so much to offer For Dustin who grew up in Lead its easy to just take off into the back country confident that he will never be too far away from home. The adventures are always changing he said as there is always something new to see. But Jamie jokingly offers a word of caution for anyone who may be new to four-wheeling. You never want to be in the back I usually get the back and I have a lot of dirt in my mouth and you get all muddy. Its fun. For the Heupels taking the four wheelers out is the ideal family time. 442120.9N 1034718.9W 31LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 CONTEST We also love going up to White Rock Jamie said. Its just beautiful up there and you feel like youre on top of the world. When they come back from the woods Jamie said the family loves to go out for dinner at Lewies Burgers Brews to the Stampmill or to Jamies shop Lotus Up Espresso Deli. They love the outdoor seating establishments and those three restaurants offer excellent seating on the deck. For visitors who are exploring Lead on their four wheelers for the first time Dustin recommends riding up Yellow Creek over to Rochford Road. From there go down to Hanna over to Spearfish Canyon and then up Terry Peak. I send a lot of people up Terry Peak summit if theyre just looking for a short one just because of the view he said.

C onnecting mining history with a future in world-leading scientific discoveries is something Lead does exceptionally well and theres no better way to see that than to attend Neutrino Day. Scheduled this year for July 8-9 Neutrino Days have become a tradition in Lead as a nod to the scientists who re-opened the Homestake Gold Mine to create the Sanford Underground Research Facility and do cutting edge science. Neutrino days are filled with science lectures about neutrinos dark matter and space travel tours of the Sanford Lab hoistroom a childrens art show science activities for kids of all ages and more. Its a phenomenal event because it serves everybody said Constance Walter communications director at Sanford Lab. This year Walter reported that the Neutrino Day festivities will start on Friday July 8 with keynote speaker Jason Crusan the director of space exploration with NASA. Crusan will discuss the Mars 2030 Experience a virtual reality experience that NASA is developing with other groups to give astronauts a virtual experience about life on Mars. The project Walter said will help scientists 35LEAD MAGAZINE 2016 determine how to build structures to last on the Red Planet. On Saturday July 9 the festivities will take off in full swing. Speakers include Berkeley scientist Dan McKinsey a principle investigator and spokesperson for the Large Underground Xenon LUX collaboration. McKinsey will discuss dark matter and how scientists know it exists. Additionally a scientist from Fermilab in Chicago will discuss neutrinos where neutrinos come from and efforts to build a massive experiment that will stretch from Fermilab to the Sanford Lab in Lead. All talks will be given at two different times in the day to allow visitors time to explore the city and participate in the other activities. There will be many more activities Walter reported that the Journey Museum in Rapid City will have its geo dome in which visitors can view the planets and stars in real time. At the Sanford Lab the youngest visitors can participate in a myriad of childrens activities including those presented by Science Steve Rokusek of South Dakota Public Broadcasting. Additionally participants can take a tour of the Yates hoistroomwith tours held every 20 minutes. Its one of the coolest things on the planet Walter said of the hoistroom. Last year Walter said Neutrino Day drew a record 1800 people. She hopes that number continues to grow. While visitors attend Neutrino Days to learn about Leads science future they are also encouraged to visit the Black Hills Mining Museum where they can learn about the 125-year history of mining and Homestake the company that built Lead. The museum also offers a simulated tour of the mine. Additionally participants can learn more about the science history of Lead including Ray Davis Nobel Prize-winning neutrino experiment at Homestake by visiting the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center. The Visitors Center is a great place for people to start because it introduces them to the history of Lead Walter said. When you look at the history of Lead the history of mining and how we have taken a city that was essentially a mining town and turned it into a world-leading science community you discover that it truly is an amazing place with a very bright future.
