This is a very simple nature trail. It winds through prairie hills, ravines, and a ponderosa pine forest. The 1 mile loop takes about one hour and ends at the amphitheater. There are many diverse plants and animals on this hike.
Pets may be taken on this trail, but they must be leashed.
From Hot Springs, take Hwy 385 north until you hit the Wind Cave Park headquarters.
Follow signs to Elk Mountain Campground and you will see trail signs.
