626.1F for a couple of miles to an intersection with No. Let’s see if we can get there. The N hill wasn’t far away, but the sun was low in the sky. There is a small beach and a mile long trail that circles the lake. Lupe followed USFS Road No. As Lupe continued gaining elevation steadily, though, it slowly became apparent that she actually was across Beaver Creek. The people Lupe passed by were having some luck catching rainbow trout. Contact me with questions or ideas. Earlier, SPHP had rejected the notion of climbing The Needles from the E.  The topo map showed Lupe would have to leave the road, drop down into Beaver Creek canyon and find a way across the creek, before even attempting to ascend The Needles.

The road passed to the W of Citadel Rock before curling E and climbing to the top of a ridge. We know you want one. A trip to the lake is just a 20-minute drive from Spearfish on a well-maintained gravel road. Although The Needles was 2 miles N of Beartown Hill, there was another possible approach from a much closer starting point. Nice, little beach area with shallow water for about 20 yards out.

Lupe again refused to leave the G6, preferring to wait until SPHP returned with a quick scouting report. To SPHP, it seemed just ridiculous. Lupe and SPHP gave up on Citadel Rock, and followed the trail along the ridge back to the S.  Instead of returning to the G6 the way she had come, Lupe continued S up onto a larger ridge before turning E. A single track trail wound along the bigger ridge past scenic aspens before continuing on down to USFS Road No. Download the instant digital version or get a shiny one in the mail. Over the years, the lake … OK, we’ll try it your way, Loop! SPHP had thought that the E side of the canyon might be a cliff from the close spacing of the contour lines on the topo map, or that Beaver Creek might be difficult to cross. Lupe and SPHP turned around and headed back to the G6 (3:20 PM, 72°F). 130 was not encouraging.
