Sica Hollow State Park

       Sica Hollow is steeped in Native American, specifically Dakotan, culture and beliefs. Sica (ßiça: pronounced she-cha) translates from the Dakota language to mean "bad, evil, or malicious". An example of the nature that inspires this title are the red bogs were seen as blood of the ancestors of the Dakota people. Interpretive guides along the National Recreation Trail, the Trail of Spirits, further give new meaning to the unique nature to be found there.
      The park is also of geologic importance and interest. It sits atop the Coteau des Prairies, a plateau that rises from the South Dakotan flatlands left in the wake of two diverging glacial lobes. The park also features the Glacial River Warren, a prehistoric outlet that drained glacial Lake Aggazi. Both of these, the Coteau de Prairies and Glacial River Warren, are designated National Natural Landmarks.
