Other Outdoor Activities
Are you looking for a unique outing for a hot time at a cool place? Sioux Falls is well known for its parks and has six beautiful ice skating rinks around the city. Each ice rink has a warming house, concessions, and skate rentals. Another popular venue is the Sherman Park hockey rink. It is available for open use when not being used by scheduled groups.
Did you know that Sioux Falls has three Nordic ski trails within the city limits? All trails offer a variety of skill levels, scenic wooded areas, and a surefire way to get some exercise. The Great Bear trail location also offers lessons for the beginning skier.
Snowshoeing is a very easy and enjoyable way to get outside during the snowy winter days. All you need is a sense of adventure and good boots. If you do not have your own snowshoes, you can borrow them from South Dakota State Parks. The parks have snowshoes that fit anyone from youth to adult, and they are free to check out for a day or a weekend.
