PIERRE | Attorney General Marty Jackley says the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a federal court decision confirming the right of the South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Department to possess and manage all of the Mickelson Trail that winds through the Black Hills.
A district judge about a year ago dismissed a lawsuit from landowners who wanted to declare that parts of the Mickelson Trail in Fall River County are privately owned.

The 109-mile trail in the Black Hills is on a former railroad line and stretches between Deadwood and Edgemont.
Local landowners filed a lawsuit two years ago arguing some parts of the trail had passed into private ownership.
