“the highest natural point in South Dakota”

Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak, or Hinhan Kaga) is the highest natural point in South Dakota and the Black Hills. It lies in the Black Elk Wilderness area, in southern Pennington County, in the Black Hills National Forest. The peak lies 3.7 mi (6.0 km) WSW of Mount Rushmore. At 7,242 feet (2,207 m), it has been described by the Board on Geographical Names as the highest summit in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains. Guadalupe Peak and Sierra Blanca also lie far to the east of the Continental Divide and are substantially higher, but the Rockies end north of the region of that latitude.

A great hike for brisk fall weather, on October 4th. Took wife and two boys (11 & 8) up and back in about 4 hours on trail 4 starting at Sylvan Lake about 9 in morning. Came across only 4 others (and 4 dogs) on way up and about 12 on way down. Beautiful views but be ready for wind and flurries this time of year.
