Hikes and Parks in Town

Skyline trails are an amazing set of hiking trails in the very center of Rapid City, but you'd never know; you feel like you're out in the Black Hills! To access, go west on St Patrick from Rushmore Road until the road ends at a big gate. Park your car there and head straight out on the trail, which goes up on the east side of dinosaur park, branching out all over. This is a great short hike in case you dont feel like finding one outside town.

Perfect for morning/evening exercise on foot or bike. Choose a trail in the hills or loop it around the creek on a concrete path. An enjoyable inner-city nature-walk.

Sightseeing

The Custer State Park Wildlife Loop is great if you have an extra day in the hills. Combine this with Sylvan Lake hiking and you have a great adventure.
