“A good, short "day trip" with varied terrain (especially for "flat" East River South Dakota).”— Greg Sage
It's very easy trail system to navigate through, and most trails are well-marked. The larger, Blue Diamond Multi-Use Trail, loop to the north side of the park is a multi-use trail, where you'll be sharing the trail with bikes and horses. The Woodland Trail loop to the south is hike and bike only.
Trails are usually in pretty good shape, although sections can be a bit difficult to hike around if it's been raining due to mud.
The majority of the hike is in the shade so it makes for a pleasant spring/summer hike. And with the vast array of trees, the colors are beautiful in the fall.
