The Custer State Park TRACK Trail was superimposed on the Park’s Creekside Trail – a hard-surface trail that runs between the Visitor Center and Grace Coolidge Campground. The trail is 2.5 miles long (in each direction), and can be accessed at several locations. Although the TRACK Trail is located on the Park’s Creekside Trail, our brochure-led adventures were designed to be used on any of the Park’s trails. From discovering things hiding in nature, to finding relationships, to learning how to identify native trees and birds, our brochures will help you discover some of the natural, cultural and historic resources that make Custer State Park such a special place. The TRACK Trail trailhead kiosk is located near the Visitor Center.
