Leonard Swanson Memorial Pathway

The Leonard “Swanny” Swanson Memorial Pathway, also known as “The Bike Path”, is a paved bike path that runs the breadth of Rapid City, SD along Rapid Creek. The main part of the is approximately 8.5 miles long, from east to west. If you count all the tributary paths the total is around 12 miles.

We realize this is not a “mountain biking trail” but it is great for families with children of all ages and it is also an great option for rainy days when the mountain biking trails are to muddy to ride.
