    Custer State Park

This section of Trail 89 follows mostly two tracks through forested and high prairie zones. Be aware of wildlife, especially buffalo. Bison are known to be aggressive towards humans. Give the bison wide berth and don't shoo them off the trail.

Access Info

Park at either French Creek Horse Camp Trail Head located a little over a mile east of SD-87 on CSP-4/Lame Johnny Road or at Highland Creek Trail Head located about one mile east of SD-87 on Highland Ridge Road.
