"An interpretive trail with wonderful views. The interpretive Sylvan Lake Shore Trail is one of the easiest in Custer State Park. This trail makes a loop around the lake, affording walkers wonderful views of the gigantic granite rocks in and around the lake. This extremely easy walk is for everyone. The majority of the trail is barrier-free."

Very easy trail around the astonishing Sylvan lake. Easy walk and after you can paddle around for a bit. Worth the drive to Custer.

Part of the trail is crushed stone and easily accessed with a stroller/wheelchair. However, I advise against a complete hike around the lake as the path will become more rugged. Of course, where the path will be more rugged its also more interesting. You will be hiking through a natural tunnel/rock gap. Certainly a nice quick easy hike.

Sylven lake is indeed a beautiful man made lake and the views along the trail are excellent. The down side to this hike is the lake is often so packed during the summer that you are challenged to find a parking space.
