Fun trail, the start had a steeper incline along gravel covered stairs but then became an easy dirt trail maybe halfway up. Overall cool but located right in town.

Nice little trail. It was easy to find and easy to follow. It was steep but myself and three kiddos with our dog were able to complete it in 40 minutes.

Well groomed, plenty of spots to rest. Trash cans all along the trail. Great 360 views of the hills and Custer at the top. Kids aged 5-9 were able to complete it with no issues.

03/17/20: Fun little hike! All stairs so it’s easier when it’s not snowy or icy. Great view and perfect for an after dinner hike. The start is right by the river and the playground so it’s great for families.

Short hike right in town. Lots of stairs though! One direction takes you to a nice viewing Area with bench, would be perfect for sunrises and sunsets. The other direction goes to Big rock overlook. Easy to check out both. Great views.

This was a nice trail with some beautiful overlooks. The disc golf course is also located in this area There are a lot of stair on your way up This area is close to town and I prefer to hike more “ in the woods” but overall it’s a nice well maintained area

Nice trail with a lot of stairs. Stone laid so it’s not muddy.

Surprisingly good workout for a short trail. Stairs aren’t my favorite but it sure got the heart rate up.

Nice strenuous start up 205 long steps. Great views at the top. You can combine with multiple trails at the top for a longer hike. A short hike to Big Rock is interesting and quick.
