Bear Butte is a unique and beautiful hike in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota. Located outside of Sturgis, SD, it is a hike you don't want to miss! With great opportunities for wildlife viewing and gorgeous views it truly showcases the best of the Black Hills. We saw hawks, deer, a marmot, songbirds and plenty of wildflowers! And from the top we could see for miles and miles in every direction. We also stopped in Sturgis for a cup of coffee at Sturgis Coffee beforehand and a cold beer after our hike at the Loud American Roadhouse.
