Hiked on Memorial Day, and I do not recommend this! Obviously hard to find camping and LOTS of people on the trail that day. But it was still beautiful, and this site gave me the information I needed at the time, THANKS.

We'd gone to the area to climb Devils Tower, but I wasn't able to climb it that trip. Instead we hiked to Harney Peak.

TracyFamily hike via Sylvan Lake Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 1984


I took my parents, my older brother Barton, and my four youngest siblings (Amy, Guy, Mariam, and Laura) on this hike when we were on a family vacation to the Black Hills area. I was able to truly "summit" by climbing onto the very top of the roof of the summit hut.

This was a family vacation many years ago and my first mountain summit. My parents, sister, and I all made it up on a nice summer afternoon.

Nice hike. I liked the stone tower on the summit.

Used this mountain as a training regiment for speed ascents in Colorado. Hiked it twice in early July and ran it towards the end of July. Fastest time was 32 minutes even from bottom to top. A great trail run for anyone who is in shape. Beautiful views. God's beauty is seen there.

Great view. Busy trail. Highly recommend going through Cathedral spires. Hiked Little Devil's Tower immediately following Harney. Steep at first but was rewarded by sighting a large mountain goat 30 yards away.

Good hike, beautiful forest. Great views out to the Badlands. But nothing beats cliff jumping at Sylvan Lake!

Although I have hikes Harney Peaks several times, this was my first time from Palmer Gulch. After reaching the summit, I took the south trail around and back to Palmer Gulch. About 9 miles round trip. A great time!!!!

Definitely a fun trek. Not to strenuous but you should carry a bit of water.

The trip up Harney Peak was great. The views along Trail 4 were impressive, as was the view from the tower at the top. Many of the trees were near their peak Fall colors. The round trip took about three hours.

A very interesting and unique peak that is well worth a visit. The granite spire around here are simply amazing and the park is well maintained.

I talked my 12 year old twins into climbing Harney Peak with me. We had a great time in beautiful surroundings.

We went up #9 from the lake and then went down the north side and looped back by the Lost Cabin Trail. My buddy's book said it was only about 10-1/2 miles, but after doing it we decided it must be about 16 and the forest service web site seems to agree. The Black hills are very different from other mountains I have seen and are a beautifull place to hike.
