This is one of the longer trails in the area with a long easy decent to the river. There are three short and moderate hill climbs to get a good heart rate up. Nice views and sometimes you will see deer. Good variety of oak forest and prairie.

First to Review

River View is the newest and longest trail in the newest State Park in South Dakota. It begins on the river bluffs and descends to the river and then goes up to the bluffs again. This is a moderate trail that is mostly dirt/grass path. The beginning is crushed rock. There is old growth Oak forest, prairie and river that makes for a good trail. @backpackerneil
