The view from the top is breathtaking, especially in the Spring, and all of the exploring of Spearfish seems only at your fingertips.  The trails are very visible and any venture off of them could lead you to unwanted encounters with rattle snakes, deer, and/or ticks.  Be sure to make a thorough check for ticks on kids and pets once you’ve ventured back down the mountain.  Bring water and wear light clothing on hot summer days.  Also, don’t forget your camera.
