dogs on leash
I am from somewhere that has some of the best hiking in the world and this hike rates right up there. Not strenuous at all. 245 total time with a lot of stops for photos. No one would call me 'fast'. But I was moving fairly steady. Nice variety of terrain and some incredible views. Also saw a couple mountain goats that kept my attention for a while! Highly recommend.
Sadly, most of Crow Peak was badly damaged by forest fire from a lightening strike this summer. However, this does not diminish what a terrific hike this is. Great workout and more than worth the effort when you get to the amazing South Dakota & Wyoming vistas at the top.
