The Custer State Park Wildlife Loop is great if you have an extra day in the hills. Combine this with Sylvan Lake hiking and you have a great adventure.

Our favorite hike; great variety, about 3 mile long loop but not too aggressive. Trailhead is first parking lot off silver mountain road, off of Rushmore road about 10 minutes outside Rapid.

This coffee house is bit of a drive from Rapid, but it's the best coffee house in the quad-state region. If you want a more localized environment beyond what Rapid City offers, here you go.

Superb food; ultra-modern environment, central downtown. Although known for their pizza, everything else is even better. Most exotic drinks in town as well.

Everything Else
Perfect for morning/evening exercise on foot or bike. Choose a trail in the hills or loop it around the creek on a concrete path. An enjoyable inner-city nature-walk.

Parks & Nature
Skyline trails are an amazing set of hiking trails in the very center of Rapid City, but you'd never know; you feel like you're out in the Black Hills! To access, go west on St Patrick from Rushmore Road until the road ends at a big gate. Park your car there and head straight out on the trail, which goes up on the east side of dinosaur park, branching out all over. This is a great short hike in case you dont feel like finding one outside town.

Nice and easy nature hike; gradual grade, short, fantastic view (the best we think) of the Hills at the end on the rim.
