Ascent of Harney Peak on 2008-09-25
|Date:||Thursday, September 25, 2008|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-South Dakota|
| Elevation:||7242 ft / 2207 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI was initially concerned because the sign at the trailhead said this would be a difficult hike and suggested leaving 4-5 hours for it. I was concerned because I was leaving the trailhead (Little Devils Tower Trailhead) about 2 hours before sunset. Fortunately, this was a piece of cake and I was up and down in under 3 hours. The fire tower at the summit is one of the nicest I've seen, architecturally - and it's open to the public 24/7.
