This newest addition to the fairgrounds loop, lined in blue, is currently made up of gravel with hopes to pave it, as funding allows. So many awesome community members have joined together in the creation of the newest piece of the West End Trails. (Some of those who have helped make this possible include Keep Miles City Beautiful, MCI2, MCC’s heavy equipment class, the Trail Creek fencing crew, Custer County, the Fairgrounds Director, the Chamber of Commerce, MCAEDC, Cowtown Ag Supply, and Doeden Construction. Maybe some others, too!)
The yellow section of this trail system that goes around the Fairgrounds and Riverside Park is primarily paved, with the exception of a few areas. This is a great path for walking, biking, and is very accessible for all community members!
The red line on this map is a mowed trail out at the Range Riders Museum. This trail makes you feel more withdrawn from the city limits with its beautiful, quiet location.
Spotted Eagle Recreation Area is traced in orange, and offers a nice variety of routes to take each time you are out walking. This popular area also has picnic tables and restrooms, horseshoe pits, grills, fishing, swimming and a lot of history!
The two purple sections of these West End Trails are practically hidden gems! Right now, they are faint deer trails that link from the trail at Range Riders to the Fairgrounds loop and then onto Spotted Eagle.
