Hiked this trail July 4th, 2018. it was a gorgeous hike with temperatures in the low 80's. The area has gotten a lot of rain lately so there were lots of little stream crossings, but nothing more than 2 feet wide. Trail was a little muddy in some areas and overgrown a little as well, but it was always easy to see the trail. The last leg will have you breathing hard, but the views are worth it.

A great day hike ending with excellent views of Cathedral Spires. Hardly saw anyone else even on July 4 weekend.

This is one of my favorite trails in the Black Hills. The trail takes you through many different environments and has a few water crosses. I always enjoy hiking this trail!
