Black Elk Peak Hike and Needles Highway

Friday, September 11, 2020

Today we ventured up to Black Elk Peak Hike (El. 7,242 ft). Ade, Tracie and Anna turned around just before 3/4 of mile. Caio, Eric and I made it up to the top on peak. We took Trail 9 up and Trail 4 down. I was thinking Trail 4 was easier but I was wrong...very wrong. haha!  The total length was 7.3 miles and took us just under 4 hours. I've learned my lesson...Trail 9 is the one you want up and down! After we got back we drove the Needles highway back to Rapid City.
