A trail leading to the top of Great Bear where there is a sign pointing out the city skyline below.

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildlife

Family Friendly The journey up to the overlook isn't too difficult, and the great views of the skyline are well worthwhile.

Description

This trail takes you to the top of Great Bear near the ski lift. At the half-way point is a sign pointing out buildings in the Sioux Falls city skyline. This route features a moderate climb to the sign, and the other side of the loop has a similar descent back to the West Pond Trail.
