Recently, we had the opportunity to hike Bear Butte. At 1251 feet, Bear Butte is the third most prominent summit in Western South Dakota. On clear days, you can see up to four states away from the peak! You can also see some of the other Black Hills landmarks, like Terry Peak, Crow Peak and Custer Peak.
For the next few months we’re going to talk about some of the hidden gems of the Black Hills and how to best enjoy them. This month we’re talking about Rochford and Mystic! They’re little villas in the heart of the Hills but they’re packed with beautiful scenery and great history. It’s also a great place to get outdoors for some exercise, even in the winter months.
