Hiking Bear Butte, South Dakota

Bear Butte was a highlight of our previous trip to South Dakota, so we decided to go back for another visit, this time hiking the 1.85 mile Summit Trail.

It was a steep climb, with a 1000 feet gain in elevation, and quite strenuous, more than I was expecting for such a short hike.  The hike back down was much easier :)
