Long Description:
Bad River Old Indian Trail Historic MarkerThere are several of identical historic markers marking the Bad River Trail from Ft. Pierre upriver to the Black Hills. This particular marker is selected on two counts: 1) it was the best readable marker we found; and 2) hopefully if you find this one you will be well on your way to finding the geocache by the same name discussed below. We give credit to Soolost for placing the Bad River 'old Indian Trail' Cache (GCWZZY), an interesting, scenic drive cache. Seeking this cache was a treat, and of course, we ran on to some of the historic markers along the way upriver.
Marker Name: The Trail Went This Way

Marker Type: Roadside

Marker Text:
The Trail Went This Way. This may be the oldest Indian Trail in Central SD. Was used from Ft. Pierre up Bad River by Midland - Philip thru Grindstone to Black Hills - Indians used this trail long before there were any settlements here.
