This is a very short,leisurely hiking trail. The significance of the trail is the sights that the poet Badger Clark enjoyed. They are nice but not spectactular. The trail is well-marked and a very easy hike.
This is basically a short loop good for stretching your legs after you've been stuck in the car too long. Like anywhere in Custer State Park, you do have a chance of seeing a Bison or too. Although they are photogenic they are not friendly. I always give them plenty of space. As with most trails in Custer State Park, this trail is well marked, easy to follow, and dry most of the year. Fall, Winter, and early Spring are a great time to see the park as there is very little traffic and the snowpack is usually pretty low. traffic in the park is heaviest from late May through early October.
