I was off trail for a while(without knowing) but I was following a "trail". Wondering why it was so bushy and had to deal with some scary moments(stepped on animal bones.. I ran!!), started realizing I was way off track. I climbed up the rocks and saw the trail. So it took a whole a lot more time to get this trail finished but it was really adventurous one. One thing I have to say is the sign should be posted more clear since I went to the trail it was really not meant to be a trail for "normal" hike.

Mowed prairie grass trail with a small "cascading" waterfall about half way through. Was led by a cute black and white Australian shepherd farm dog. Don't expect a lot but perhaps bring a journal and stop and enjoy the solitude for a moment.

easy to follow, good for any age, waterfall was nice at the end.

peace and Solitude at the waterfall area. Go in the morning where you can handle the no shade hike and enjoy the waterfall area without too many bugs. Lots of birds singing

Lots of ticks, trail is easy to follow. Grass is long on the trail and its hard to see holes in the ground. The waterfall is small, but decent.

It's was a great park! Very pretty! Has a nice lake, a handful of trails that are easy and not very long! Anyone can enjoy these trails

The trail looked promising and we were able to take a lot of nice bird pictures in the Prarie leading up to the trail head. We were unable to go down the trail (June 12, 2016) because within 5 minutes of getting out of the car 2 of the 4 people in my party had ticks on their legs. We would try this trail again outside of tick season.

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.

This short trail is now one of my local favorites. Very low effort to get to the reward of a tranquil setting of the waterfalls. On the way a very wide variety of wildflowers will be your companions. @backpackerneil

This point to point trail goes along the spine of a hill so that you have 360 degree views in all directions. Bluestem prairie grass and wildflowers are the dominant vegetation while quartzite rock also dot the landscape. Very little used trail with lots of solitude. Trail has information kiosks which gives some detailed information on this special area on each end next to small grass parking area. I felt as though I was in a 'Prairie Wilderness' @backpackerneil

Despite it being close to 100* when we hiked it, we had a great time here. There is a lot of wildlife here, especially birds. There is even a wild bison herd. Make sure to stop by the old quarry--great views!

Blue Mounds state park is primarily a prairie park with scattered timber. Many miles of trails for hiking, walking, or cycling. Buffalo herd at the park. Good variety of wildlife for viewing, birding. Fee campgrounds from tent to RV siites. Well worth the trip.

Split Rock Creek SP is a great fee full service campground from tent to RV. It is located only about 6 miles from Pipestone National monument, a must see when you are in the area. Pipestone does not have camping facilities so this park is ideal place to stay when you are going to Pipestone. The park has a swim area, fishing, hiking trails. A nice Park, worth the stay.

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.
