We're headed through South Dakota this summer with time in the Badlands and Black Hills. Any favorite hikes to recommend?

I really like Crow Peak outside Spearfish, which is a great town on its own. It is a fairly steep hike but very pretty.

Thanks, @paultrusty! Great suggestion!

Don't forget the high point of the black Hills, Black Elk Peak (formerly Mt. Harney)  It is a great trip with several trails leading to the summit.
