A true gem of the Black Hills. Harney Peak and Sylvan Lake (trailhead to Harney Peak), are in the central Black Hills and offer some of the most amazing views in the area. Harney Peak is the highest natural point in the Black Hills and offers one of the those hikes that you just can't take enough in. The vista from the top is picturesque. 

Sylvan lake was built using a dam in 1881 and has been featured on movies like National Treasure. It's a one of a kind location filled with rich history and breathtaking views. Many weddings occur in the area because of its beauty.
