Lovers Leap Snowshoe Hike at Custer State Park
February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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.
