Easy hike back to the 'bathtub'. There is a small 'tub' for the kids and a larger one for the adults! Beautiful scenery. Fun time...don't miss this one!

This is a bit of a hike and on rough terrain. First, you have to find the place to pull off. There is a small parking lot, so getting there early is best. Do not park along Hy14 where marked no parking - I have...More

This is a great "off-road" hike for most ages (our 6 and 8 year old were able to navigate the trails just fine). This hike involves numerous crossings of the Squaw, but they are all worth it for some of the great views of cliffs,...More

Me and my 12 year old son were looking for one more hike to do in the Blackhills area before we left. I found this little gem and it was worth it. The hike was easy and fun because you had to cross cross the...More

It's cool and refreshing, cool rock formations and nice water flow, nice to see kids outdoors as it's great for splashing ...but it's also so popular it's a bit of a sacrificial lamb. Trail over use on both sides of the creek - no signs...More

After reading many positive reviews we were excited for this hike. It was one of the biggest letdowns of a two week road trip! The trails were jam packed with people so if you're looking for a quiet hike this is not it. The volume...More

What a wonderful naturally made place! Watch out for the poison ivy, but otherwise the hikes isn't breathtaking. Best to wear water shoes and plan to get wet!!

Hike was relatively easy for all ages. Bathing suit and water shoes recommended. Not well marked so keep going until you find the natural slide. It was fun. Dogs allowed but as with any trail, many owners do not think to clean up after them...More

Ware shoes that you don't mind getting wet because you will be walking back and forth through the creek while following the trail. This place is certainly worth seeing if you don't mind taking a little hike but it does get a bit slippery. So...More
