Hike up through the ponderosa pines. On the top of the ridge you will have a great view of Stockade Lake and the Black Hills. With binoculars you can see Crazy Horse Monument. Fun hike.
This was a beautiful, relatively easy trail. We did it with our three kids and they loved it too! Such amazing views! Glorious!
Good trail with steep hill at first. Good views, just under 1.5 miles. Quick.
It's a lot of going up and down. It was nice variety and beautiful views. It was mostly a rock trail, so you have to watch where you're going. I would like to do it again!
