Geocaching Harney Peak

Geocaching Harney Peak is a great way to explore the summit.  A photograph standing in the Harney Peak Fire Lookout Tower documents your find of the Harney Peak geocache.  Hiking Harney Peak, SD is the only way to the cache, since there are no roads leading to the summit.  The Photo Gallery provides a preview of Harney Peak.

Harney Peak, SD is located within a designated Wilderness Area, therefore traditional geocaching where a container is placed at the destination is not permitted by the U.S. Forest Service.  Respect the natural and historical significance of Harney Peak, and the surrounding 35,000 acres of Black Elk Wilderness Area, and take nothing but pictures, leave only footprints.
