Elk Mountain Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A fun, informative loop hike suitable for the entire family."
--Bert & Jane Gildart, Hiking South Dakota's Black Hills Country (Falcon Guides).
This is a simple hike with 9 interpretive stops to educate the passerby about the ecology of Wind Cave National Park. This would be an appropriate hike to take the kids along to let them burn off some extra energy and learn a few things about the area. This appears to be one of the busiest trails in the park but the chance for some great views and a bit of free education is hard to pass up. The trail is very easy to follow and travel on. This is a loop trail which will conveniently return you to the parking lot.
