  • This hike is very nice. I came during sunset hours. The view here is the best. In fact, this peak is the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains! The hike is said to take 3-4 hours. To hike to and from, I did it in 2 hours. But I stayed a half an hour at the top to enjoy the view. Funny story, on the way back it was dark. We used eight lights to flash the people at the peak. They flashed us too, it was pretty fun. The hike has a slight increase all the way up. It is moderately easy. I would definitely recommend anyone to come if they want a rewarding hike!
  • Awesome hike! We were there when there was a nearby forest fire in Custer State Park, so we had to register our names with the ranger just in case we turned up missing. The view up top was so cool, with the smoke off in the distance. Luckily the fire was contained.
