Great hiking. Greener than green. The trails were a bit muddy. We opted to stay on the more traveled roads. It was enjoyable. Heads up! Mosquitoes are treacherous. Bug spray did very little. They were less aggressive when I started explaining my political views.

I haven't skied here since I was a teenager. For the area, it's a great way to spend the day on Christmas break. I recently discovered all the trails in the area. I've lived in Sioux Falls most of my life and I've been here more this summer than I have any winter! Bring your bug spray, the gnats and mosquitoes are ferocious deep in the woods.

I bring my poodle here to hike frequently! It's fifteen minutes from my house. It's probably the nicest place to hike for a couple of hours that's not an hour's drive away. There are a nice assortment of trails to walk on!

Had our wedding reception at Great Bear, and it was awesome!! Everything was excellent ... the food, the drinks, the decorations, ect. Jill and her team did a great job and made it very easy on us. Highly recommend this place!

One of the better kept places to hike. Doesn't stink half as bad as MOST trails is Sioux Falls.
