  1. Yes!! The Great Plains Trail connects w/ the Mickelson Trail. That is the best news of heard all day. The more connections we can make like that, the better. Thanks for sharing those pictures, Steve!!

    • Yup. The Mickelson Trail was an easier connect on the southern end than the Centennial Trail, but I managed to find a way to connect the MT to the CT as well, so the GPT user has a choice.
