I had no idea that South Dakota had such a treasure. Stunning vista after vista, all well served by road and trail, all as unobtrusive as possible, and with a lot of visible wildlife. This is a must-visit for all Americans.

This is a long hike, 8 miles round trip and is moderately strenuous because of the distance and ascent. However, it is well worth the effort. You climb to the highest point in the US east of the Rockies and from the summit, the view is spectacular. The quickest way to the summit is Trail #9 which leaves from Sylvan Lake. However, I chose to begin from the Little Devil's Trailhead which is along Trail #4. It makes for a longer hike but I was able to include a visit to the top of Little Devil's Tower after some challenging but fun rock scrambling. This trail option also passes by Cathedral Spires. Once at the top, you can get spectacular views from the Lookout Station or walk out and find your own spot on the rocky summit. There is some great hikes in Custer State Park but this was definitely the highlight. I would start early in the morning as this trail did get busy as the day progressed. Bring lots of water and a light jacket as it is quite cold at the summit.

My son and I enjoyed the Black Hills while visiting Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. It was awesome to see. I’m from Michigan where there are a lot of trees and State Parks but they can’t hold a candle to the Black Hills. I would definitely recommend.
