Black Hills National Forest
Veterans Point Trail, #56, is an accessible trail at the north end of Pactola Dam. The Veterans Point project is a cooperative effort of the Rapid City Chapter 3, Disabled American Veterans (DAY) and the Forest Service. The paved portion of this one-mile trail is a challenging 6 percent descent to the lake, where wood piers offer people with disabilities a chance to test their fishing skills. Plans call for a bridge, more trail paving, picnic areas and benches.
