“Traverse a floodplain full of prairie dogs en route to Red Beds Trail.”— Brian Smith
Continuing on South Side Trail, you'll see lots of prairie dogs and eventually cross the main road. After crossing the road, the trail steepens and ascends some +200' through open forest. Remember to look back to the south as you ascend for great views of the Black Hills.
When you hit Red Beds Trail, turn right to complete most of that loop or left for the quickest way to the visitor center.
