Ok so first off, I am a flat lander and although I really enjoy the mountains, I am more partial towards 1-2 hour hikes with reasonal grades/lower elevations. I realize that Custer is up in elevation, but with that in mind are there any smaller hikes or partial hikes that anyone can recommend? I am trying to see a lot in the Custer Area in 2 days. Then we go to Badlands for about a day. Then to the Deadwood area for a day. Then up to T.Roosevelt in ND (that day is a mostly a travel day). Trying to find balance in seeing some of the scenic drives but not just spending all the time in the car. My girlfriend will also be more inclined to hike if it's mellower. If I had more time (regretfully I overplan) I would be up for a bit longer trek. Seperate question: should I bring the hiking poles? Thanks for the help!
