Description

This is a great family-friendly trail to the Wind Cave. Runners will enjoy singletrack most of the way. While there are a few areas of steep trail, there's nothing above an intermediate skill level. It's a great trail to challenge adults, teenagers, and youngsters (5+) alike.

In spring and early summer, there's plenty of water to drink (after filtering of course) and to cool off your head and feet. Enjoy the small waterfall near the top!

A word to the wise: bring snacks. While this trail isn't very long, it can easily take 4 hours round-trip depending on your skill and fitness level.
