Every hike we do in Wind Cave has exceded our expectations. This one is no exception! We hiked about 1/2 way and had a picnic dinner just off of the trail. We did have a close encounter with a buffalo. We avoided him on the return trip by hiking off trail for a short distance. It was in the fall so we finished the hike at dusk. One of my most memorable hikes in the Black Hills.
