The trail ends on the outskirts of Fort Pierre. The Riverfront Trail which starts a few blocks east, allows bicyclists to cross the Missouri River into Pierre.

Oahe Dam Downstream Fort Pierre Trail Reviews

Fort Pierre to Oahe Dam

This is a paved trail on the west side of the Missouri River that connects Pierre and Fort Pierre with recreation areas at Oahe Dam. Overall it is a nice trail, but there are cracked pavement areas challenging for narrow tires. Across the river there is a trail that goes along the river to Farm Island State Park an additional 4 miles or so downriver. Pierre also has some trails near the State Capitol Building. Where there are not trails, there are neighborhood roads to ride.
