The most important thing you can do to remain safe while exploring Pipestone National Monument is to remain on the paved trail while hiking. Keep the following points in mind:

  • Ticks and poison ivy are easily encountered off the paved trail.
  • Quarries are especially dangerous because they are often steep, deep, and lined with loose rock that could cause injury or a fall.
  • The areas of the trail with steps as well as the floor of the demonstration quarry can be slick when wet.
  • No drinking water is available along the trail.
