Harney Peak, South Dakota
Elevation: 7,242 feet
Mileage: 6.0 miles
Vertical Gain: 1,500 feet
Route: Sylvan Lake Trail

April 13-14th, 2002

Harney Peak is the highest point in South Dakota and a very beautiful highpoint to visit. Sitting at 7242 feet it sits only 22 feet higher than my house when I lived in Laramie Wyoming. Most people wait until summer to climb Harney Peak but I wanted to get it done before summer so I can concentrate on the higher summits during the summer. Climbing this peak in April was enjoyable because the typically crowded Custer State Park was a ghost town compared to the summer crowds.
