Pageant Hill holds a special place in the hearts of Custer residents and regular visitors. It’s the hill that borders the south side of the city (see the lighted “Custer” sign). The 73-acre park is where volunteer firefighters shoot fireworks for the town on July 4. Pageant Hill is also a popular sledding hill in winter. In summers, it’s a favorite destination of disc golfers. Disc rentals are available at the Chamber of Commerce visitor’s center, at the foot of the hill. Nature walks are plentiful in the Black Hills, but the trail to the summit has steps and you’re rewarded with an observation tower at the top. High in the pine forest, you’ll enjoy great views of the city and Southern Black Hills. Park at the end of 6th Street to start your climb.
