This granite 7,242 ft mountain lies in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. There is a historic stone firetower at the top that is no longer in use but is open to the public to check out. The trail in to the peak takes you past amazing granite towers rising out of the hills. It is a very unique geological area.

very Scenic and very awesome Trail. definitely moderate in difficulty owing largely to rocks and ice on the trail during the winter. It is not overly strenuous other than perhaps a football field worth of distance toward the end. Even that is not a challenge if you're used to hiking in the Rockies

If it wasn't for the ice and snow this would be a five star hike! Beautiful rock formations and when you get to the top it's completely worth it. I'd take trail four up and nine back down.

Two adventures here. One of the most beautiful hikes. The Black Hills are so unique.

Fairly strenuous hike, but the view is well worth the effort.
