SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- Blood Run, a national historic landmark set to become South Dakota's first new state park in more than 50 years, is hosting two guided hikes this month.

The picturesque acreage along the Big Sioux River was used by thousands of Oneota Indians into the early 1700s, and its diverse landscape boasts a large oak forest, rolling hills, flood plains and riverside bluffs.

Park naturalist Edward Raventon will lead hikes on Sept. 15 and 22 at 9 a.m. The hikes are free to attend but have limited space. Reservations can be made online or by calling (605) 362-2777.

The entire Blood Run site could eventually encompass some 1,400 acres in South Dakota and Iowa.
