Custer State Park is presenting a Halloween night hike for families, beginning at the Peter Norbeck Visitor Center in Custer State Park. The event is Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Experiencing the outdoors at night is a treat for many visitors. Life continues to exist even after the sun goes down for the day. This event allows participants to hike a paved path along a “creepy” route with costumed characters. The characters humor their audiences with short skits about the natural history of various critters living within the Black Hills. Hikes take place every 15 minutes. Reservations are required.

There is no cost, but a park entrance license is required. Participants are asked to wear comfortable hiking shoes and dress for the weather. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Costumes are encouraged for the hikes but not required. For more information or to reserve your slot, call 255-4464.
