Nice walk through a saved prairie among the farmlands and towns. Many wildlife to see including, birds, mice, snakes and bison. a shame I felt like there should of been more land saved for this beautiful prairie.
Got stuck in Sioux Falls during a snow storm and took advantage of the situation and bought some snow shoes. Went to Blue Mounds and hiked 8 miles on trails there. The snow averaged about 18" on the flat. Great bluff views, tall grass prairie, buffalo herd, and a lot of deer. Their is a nice full service fee campground at the park and well rounded number of differant activities at the park. Well worth the visit. A park that is predominantly prairie is anything but boring. A winter visit was great.
