Hike the trail, get an incredible view of the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains, Black Elk Peak and the surrounding granite spires!
The trail starts near the East side of Stockade Lake just outside Custer, South Dakota. The trail is a 1.2 mile loop, and climbs up to 5,650 feet above sea level. The trail is easy to follow and is well worn. Also the trees have blue diamonds nailed to them for even easier route finding. Once you get to the high point of the trail there is a very scenic viewing area where the trees have been cleared and you have a tremendous view of the Black Hills! you can see Black Elk Peak, Cathedral Spires, and Little Devils Tower!
If you hike the trail in the summer, Stockade Lake is right there waiting to cool you off!
The trail is in Custer State Park, so there is a fee, you can buy a weekly or an annual pass.
Even though the trail is on the shorter side, it is still a good idea to bring:
- Sturdy Footwear
- Camera Gear
