7th Annual Fall Volksmarch
September 29 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This autumn hike on Sunday, September 29th is held the same weekend as the Custer State Park Buffalo Round-Up. It is the public’s second chance of the year to walk up the world’s largest mountain carving in progress.
Admission is waived to volksmarchers. A donation of three cans of food per person is appreciated. The AVA’s hike fee is $3 for each participant regardless of age. Regular admission applies to non-hikers.
No advance registration. Hikers must check in at starting point, which is at the Memorial’s upper parking area. Hikers must register before 1 p.m. and be off the trail by 4 p.m.
FREE. Due to the popularity of the event, parking can be some distance from the starting point and not on paved or gravel surfaces. Shuttle buses operate between these outlying parking lots and the start-finish area.
