This is a great hike to do if you are short on time. You scramble and hike up boulders and rocks through massive spires. We did this as an out and back. The way out is all uphill. You most likely want some good knees for this hike.
This was a great short hike while we were doing the scenic needles highway drive. Both are exceptionally beautiful. Our 7 & 9 year old kids had no difficulty on the hike and really enjoyed climbing on the big boulders along the way. Watch out for ticks in this area.

Take this short route to the top of Harney Peak for a breath taking view of 5 states. The trail goes through the Needles Area en route to Harney Peak. You get great views of the Black Hills.
This is one of the shorter hikes in Custer State Park, but it was very enjoyable. There are some places where you scramble over rocks and on the way down, there are some long steps down. I loved the scenery and the chance to get up close to some amazing rock formations.
