From biking to hiking, fishing to boating, the Black Hills has something for every outdoors enthusiast to enjoy. Hiking in the Black Hills is one of the most popular summer activities, and with trails all over the Black Hills National Forest, there’s certainly no shortage of places to get your hiking in during your stay. Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak) is one of the most popular Black Hills hiking destinations, and offers an awe-inspiring view of the area from its summit. Take a stroll on the George S. Mickelson trail, or travel north to Spearfish and wander through the beautiful Spearfish Canyon to breathe in the crisp air and take in the gorgeous scenery of the Black Hills. In addition to the variety of hiking trails, Black Hills lakes provide a wonderful way to relax and cool down during the summer months. Fishing, canoeing, kayaking and other fun water activities await you and your family when you experience the Black Hills from the Powder House Lodge.
