Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful hike while visiting the Black Hills today. Took trail 9 up from Sylvan Lake and descended by trail 4. Very nice trail, easy to follow. For me it was a really easy hike. My 7-year old son and 5-year old daughter also made the summit. Perfect weather. Took the short jaunt over to McGillicuddy as well. Wish I had time to do Little Devils Tower. This is my first state high point.
