A national historic landmark set to become South Dakota's first new state park in more than 50 years is holding its last autumn hike on Saturday evening.
The final "Spirits of the Forest" self-guided walk will highlight the beauty of the Blood Run Nature Area, a picturesque acreage along the Big Sioux River.
Blood Run naturalist Edward Raventon suggests that visitors arrive after 6 p.m. and plan to spend an hour on the trail walking down to "Pumpkin Hollow." He recommends bringing a flashlight.
The future park southeast of Sioux Falls is located at the end of 270th Street a mile east of Lincoln County Highway 135.
The event is free to the public and preregistration is not required. A campfire and hot cider will be available after the walk.
