Tallgrass teamed with our friends at AE2S Engineering to create destination trailheads for some of Rapid City’s newest trails in Skyline Wilderness. The existing trailheads were casual affairs - dirt parking lots with limited parking, dangerous pullouts, and no site control - at best. The plans served to solve many of the various site issues for all users and included everything from straightening a section of Skyline Drive to eliminate a blind corner and adding a new parking lot to the end of West Fulton Street. Accommodations for bus traffic and a safer street crossing were implemented at the Dinosaur Park Trailhead.
New custom bicycle racks, signs, and landscape features were added. The trailheads provide a place to gather before embarking on some of the new trails. Rapid City continues to lead the way as a national ride center for biking.
