Hopping onto Big Rock Park's 'Skywalk trail'

This video comes from SDPB's arts & life program, Dakota Life.

Big Rock Park in Custer once operated an aerial tramway that carried tourists to the top of the Big Rock. When the tramway went defunct, the park was, for a time, largely forgotten.

In recent years, Custer locals put their park back on the map with the Custer Skywalk -- a trail system and staircase to an observation deck on top of the rock. SDPB takes a look at the past and present of Big Rock Park.
