Description

A short spur trail from Trail #4 leads to the summit of Little Devils Tower. This singletrack trail winds up a hill before reaching the base of the rock formation where you'll follow spray painted markings to scramble up the steep walls to the top. At the top you'll have panoramic views of the Black Hills with one of the best views of Black Elk Peak and the Cathedral Spires around. If lucky, you may see mountain goats climbing these rocks!
