Auld-Brokaw Trail Description

Yankton, South Dakota's most famous son, Tom Brokaw, lends his name to this trail. The stimulus for the Auld-Brokaw project was actually the need for flood protection for the businesses and homes along Marne Creek. What the city ended up with however, was a flood mitigation measure that doubled as a new recreational asset. The10-foot wide Auld-Brokaw trail matches the creek curve for curve as it meanders through the heart of the city. Along the way, the trail connects to destinations including schools, city parks and natural areas. Native grasses and wildflowers dot the landscape. Trailside benches provide runners and walkers with a space to pause and take it all in.

The northern end of the 50-acre linear park is along W. 19th St. The southern end is at Riverside Park, where the creek flows into the Missouri River. This trail is part of the 40 mile long Meridian trails system and connects a few of the parks within Yankton city limits.

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at the northern trailhead at the Yankton Summit Activities Center (1801 Summit St). From here, you can access the trail by riding or walking about 0.25 miles east along W. 19th Street. There is also parking at Riverside Park (200 Levee St) as well as on-street parking on Levee Street and other streets close to the park.
