Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In South Dakota

Submitted by Leslie
A couple of years ago we went to the Black Hills for vacation with our 2 chocolate labs.  We camped for seven days and hiked the area.  We really loved hiking up to Harney Peak.  The dogs could be off leash and they had a blast!  Sylvan Lake was great too and the dogs could swim to cool down after the hike.
