Custer State Park

13329 US Highway 16A

Custer, SD, United States, 57730

On February 15, visitors to Custer State Park will have the opportunity to experience the winter sights and sounds of the popular park, by way of a pair of snowshoes.

The Lovers Leap Snowshoe Hike will guide participants through a pine forest overlooking Game Lodge complex, meandering near Grace Coolidge Creek. The four-mile hike is rated moderated and allows participants the opportunity to try the recreational event and explore some of the park’s most beautiful winter scenery.

The hike will depart at 1 p.m. from the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center. Snowshoes are provided, but reservations are required to borrow snowshoes by calling 605-255-4515.
There is no cost for the hikes; however, a park entrance license is required. If the amount of snow does not allow for snowshoeing, a guided hike will still be held.

Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, as temperatures in the Black Hills can be unpredictable. Any footwear can be used with snowshoes; however, waterproof hiking boots are recommended.
