Hiking, Biking and Horse Trails

All trails and dispersed riding south of French Creek are currently closed due to salvage logging operations until June 8, 2018. Horse trails and dispersed riding to the north of French Creek Horse Camp remain open. Additionally, all interior gravel roads are closed with the exception of Lame Johnny Road from Blue Bell Lodge to French Creek Horse Camp. All Horse Campers are required to enter French Creek Horse Camp from the west. Logging activity has the potential to be heavy on the interior roads of Custer State Park, and will be traveling through French Creek Horse Camp regularly.

Custer State Park's early pioneers, ranchers and loggers have left behind miles of trails and backcountry roads to explore. Several of these trails are shared by hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers. Please be polite to all that you meet and pay attention to postings due to natural resource management concerns.
