I was in South Dakota on vacation with some high school friends and I convinced several of them to go on a short morning hike with me.  Crow Peak is located west of Spearfish, South Dakota, about seven miles.  It is a pleasant hike with good views after gaining some elevation.  The trail is used by hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers.  We ran into several other individuals throughout the morning.  We stopped in at Crow Peak Brewing and Spearfish Brewing Company after the hike for a couple beers.
