The water was beautiful. I would like to come back when it gets a little warmer because the whole trail was covered in ice and was more difficult than it should have been.

It was a nice little trail overall, just had a few fallen trees across the walkway.

Little elk creek turns in to Dalton Lake trail once you hit the white rock road about 3 miles into it. The last .3 miles is all road, not trail, so that's a little less than ideal, but still a beautiful hike.

This is the same trail listed as Little Elk Creek. It follows the stream and has several pretty little waterfalls.

Super easy and short. The view is ok but it's a bit of a long drive for just this. Maybe stopping by on your way somewhere else would be ok but it's barely worth it to make this a hiking "destination". It is good for kids and for the historical significance of the site but I doubt I'll be back again

Wonderful little hike takes you to elevated beautiful view. Dogs loved it!

Scenic. Walking. Lots of people. Spots for picnics.

Good quick trail run loop.

Back wood hiking next to Sioux Falls.

Great single track biking. Great trail running. Feels like you are out of town. Lots of hills. The area is great sledding in winter.

Short easy. Some nicely done scenic overlooks.

Nice trails. Not very difficult. Good for jogging. Some hills.

The trail was ok, nothing too special. It's basically a walk to the waterfall, look at it for a few minutes, then turn around and walk back kind of deal. The
