highicespeedy hike  Sucess!
ran up to the summit. coming down, I was slowed by a horse carivan. the young cowboy said I may as well stay behind, since horses are faster than hikers. I asked to pass and was finishing my lunch at the T.H. when he arrived with his guided clients. maybe he'll think twice before saying those words again to a hiker.

What a cool hut in the end. Was a little warm even in May. I was glad I wasn't around when it started hailing in Rapid City the next day though.

This is an easy hiking trail for families, that gets steep enough at the end for kids to say they "climbed a mountain." We hiked at dusk in the summer, so the crowds were small but there was plenty of "evidence of horse use."

Climbed this RT in three hours on our way from Mount Rushmore to Deadwood. Nice, brisk day, worthwhile hike.

Only person on trail other than a worker up to repair some of the tower. Had rain and fog, but overall had a good time.

Daughter Vanessa and I did Harney Peak on the second year of our highpoint quest. It was number 12 of my 49 state high points.

seth@LOKIWinter Hike on Harney  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2003

Sylvan Lake was frozen and snow and ice dominated the forest as we hiked past the impressive towering Cathedral crags across the ridge to the spiral staired lookout on top. from the summit the entire range seems smaller and less intricate than it truly is.
We finished the loop hiking past Little Devil's Tower as the trail strolls steeply downhill through the rock spiked gorge rolling through pines back to the trailhead. Awesome trip that beckons me back to the "Hills!"

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2006
Ovenight rains on Harney Peak made for a cool, fresh hike up for our group - Rachel, Tina, Eric, and Tom (see photos). The early morning sun over the clouds below, made for some spectacular viewing - a good example of nature at it's best.

PapaBanucciHiked with Cousin and 3 Kids  Sucess!

Hiked with cousin and 3 of our kids - ages 8, 9, and 11. We left the younger kids back at the camp. With the ages we took, it was a fun four hour hike with a number of bouldering diversions. With younger kids, I think there would have been more complaining as well as taken more than five hours. We took trail 9 up and 4 down. It was absolutely gorgeous - beautiful forest the whole way. The trail is good. Solo, my cousin and I could have jogged it. Anyhow, the next morning the two of us jogged up and down the Cathedral Spires trail - that was fun.

Pretty cool hike, by far the best part of S Dakota. Nice summit to go out and walk around for cool views.

After stopping by to visit the president's at Mt. Rushmore, I jogged up Harney. The view was very nice, but the most rewarding part was the mountain goat that I was able to get some pictures of at the top.

Short hike up the trail. It was windy and cold. We just completed the Monster in North Dakota the day before.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2006
Went up Trail 4, and down Trail 9. It took about 75 minutes up, and 65 minutes down. As always, the views were great. This was much better than the Memorial Day weekend two years ago, when everyone was treated to an hour of heavy hail and lightning.

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.
