Nice hike for the kids

There are several drop offs and slippery rocks on this trail, as a mom of a 6 year old, it made me nervous. But it was a beautiful and short hike.

It was sooooo pretty! It was a short hike, but I was looking around and taking photos- enjoyed so much. Very light traffic but seem like lots of locals coming to hang out here.

Short but beautiful trail. Full of history of Jessie James.

Great hike! Combined the South Wall Trail with the Split Rock Creek trail.

Three separate hikes in this park. All are fairly easy but very picturesque. One could easily spend hours on the bank of this creek fishing and relaxing.

I'm a beginning hiker. . . And mostly interested in hiking as a family activity. We had a blast on this trail! Palisades State Park is a lot of fun to crawl around in.

"Hiked" this in the fall. The best views are really from the bridge, it's a short walk though, so you might as well spend a half hour on it. Devil's Gulch hike is about a mile north of this trail and is pretty neat too.

on South Wall Trail

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Although this is a trail in the smallest State Park in South Dakota it is a diamond. the Quartzite rock formations draw rock climbers from around the region. This is a great place to hang out for an afternoon, watch the river for Kingfishers and other birds, watch climbers. Very family friendly. Best to go in Spring, Summer or Fall. I'm rating it a 4 for it's beauty but not a 5 because it's short.

This is a short trail used by climbers. It runs along the Split Rock Creek and below the cliffs. This is a very scenic park and a great place to go rock climbing .

Did the trail in the winter. Very short trail, only rated 3 stars because of the views of the river and rock formations.

Did the hike in winter. Enjoyed the solitude. Saw many signs of wildlife with the fresh snow. The whole park is very scenic.
