19th Annual Halloween Night Hike

Take a 1.5-mile guided hike along a paved trail and meet costumed characters that portray natural history about various plants, animals or people living in the Black Hills. Each hike will start at the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center and travel to the Game Lodge Campground where characters are staged at various campsites to act out humorous skits.

Each hike will be led by a guide and lasts approximately one hour. The event is suitable for families with young children and is educational without the spookiness of Halloween. With the trail lit only by jack-o-lanterns and tiki torches, hikers will enjoy the sights, sounds and night life of Custer State Park.

Hikes depart every 15 minutes starting at 5:30 p.m. MT with the last hike departing at 8 p.m. each night. Reservations are required and can be made starting October 1.
