40 MI MEDIUM RIDE

After a tour of the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, you’ll climb up and across the Oahe Dam - one of the largest earth-rolled dams on the planet.  From there you’ll head out into the western SD prairie to the Chantier Creek Recreation Area. The out and back is on Highway 1806 - named for the year the Lewis & Clark expedition returned back down the Missouri River.
