Strap on your snowshoes

Custer State Park will offer a guided snowshoe hike at 10 a.m. on March 10 at the Sylvan Lake Area. Interested participants should meet at the Sylvan Lake General Store parking lot.

The 1-mile hike will go around Sylvan Lake, with the option to extend to a total of 3 miles onto Trail No. 9 with views of Black Elk Peak. The trail is considered easy to moderate.

If the amount of snow does not allow for snowshoeing, a guided hike without snowshoes will be held.

Participants should check the weather and dress appropriately. Any footwear can be used with snowshoes; however, officials recommend waterproof hiking boots.

The hike is free, but an entrance license is required to get into the park. Snowshoes are provided and reservations are required. To make a reservation, call 255-4515. This is the last guided snowshoe hike scheduled for this season. There is a snowshoe checkout until April 1.
