Deadwood Trail, Sidney, NE 69162
The Sidney-Deadwood Trail formed shortly after gold was discovered in South Dakota’s Black Hills in 1874. This shortest route to the gold fields brought with it a long list of questionable characters. Today Sidney’s Sidney-Deadwood hike/bike trail unquestionably remembers that golden history. The community’s Gold Rush Days makes local history each June. Live music, cannon firings, butter-making and panning for gold are some of the fun things to see and do during this historic occasion.
