“The “Gold Rush Byway”

Historic Ride

• Sidney-Deadwood Trail

July 2 & 3, 2011 • Crawford, Neb.

Sponsored by “Ride the Ridge” Riding Group and Northwest Nebraska High County

Horseback riders are invited to come experience the “RUSH” the gold seekers must have felt when they caught that first glimpse of their destination (the “Black Hills” of South Dakota) as they rode down “Breakneck Hill” 10 miles south of Crawford, Neb. Riders will experience the “thrill” of reliving some authentic western history along with enjoying the beautiful Pine Ridge scenery and wildlife.

The ride will begin just west of Belmont where it will follow the Sidney-Deadwood Trail winding down “Breakneck Hill.” At the bottom of Breakneck, the trail passes by the Gene Thornton place which was the White Clay Stage Station Est. 1876. The ride will follow the original trail, as much as possible, across the Jackman place.

From there the trail crosses the place currently owned by Bob Hammitt of Woodbine, Iowa. Bob will be leading the ride as “Trail Boss” this year. The trail continues to the junction of Breakneck/Four Mile Road and Highway 2/71. Teamsters are invited to join the ride there as the trip down “Breakneck Hill” may be a little too tortuous.

The ride will continue west a short distance and then north into Fort Robinson. Riders should arrive at the Fort early afternoon. The riders will be responsible for packing their own lunch or snacks for the ride or plan to have lunch at the Fort. At that time, there will be some local “Old Timers” present that will be able to visit with the riders and share their knowledge of the Sidney-Deadwood Trail and answer any questions. The morning of Sunday, July 3rd the group will ride from Fort Robinson to Crawford for a Pancake Breakfast.

Contact Person for the Ride is Jim Lees (308) 667-2754.
