All About-Crazy Horse Spring Volksmarch
May 28, 2019

The 34th Annual Spring Volksmarch will be June 1-2, 2019.  The bi-annual Crazy Horse Volksmarch (an organized hike) is a 10K or 6.2-mile woodlands ramble to the world’s largest mountain carving in progress.  The Crazy Horse Volksmarch is the most popular organized hike in the United States. This family event is sponsored by the Black Hills Chapter of the American Volkssport Association (AVA) and hosted by Crazy Horse Memorial®.

Hikers follow dirt trails and gravel work roads up to the Crazy Horse Mountain Carving. The turn-around point is on the Arm of Crazy Horse directly in front of the nine-story-high face, which was completed June 3, 1998. Hikers get an up-close view of the mountain. Work continues on the rest of what will be the largest sculpture in the world.

The Laughing Water Restaurant at Crazy Horse opens for breakfast at 6 a.m. during the Volksmarch, and serves lunch and dinner. The snack shop also is open. Coffee is always free.

Admission is waived to volksmarchers. A donation of three cans of food per person is appreciated. The AVA’s hike fee is $3 for each participant regardless of age. Regular admission applies to non-hikers.  No advance registration. Hikers must check in at the starting point, which is at the Memorial’s upper parking area. Hikers must register before 1 p.m. and be off the trail by 4 p.m.  Starting time is anytime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
