From Rapid City take Highway 44 west to the junction with Highway 385. Turn to the south and travel 2.8 miles to the junction with FSR 258 just past the Pactola Visitor Center. Travel west on FSR 258 for 1.4 miles to junction with FSR 545. Take FSR 545 for one mile to the trailhead.

Very easy family friendly hike. Both loops averaged to around 3.5 miles. There are some beautiful views of Pactola Lake and a couple benches along the trail to enjoy them.
