Poet’s Table on a Mountain Hike


Poet’s Table is a serene, scenic spot that is mostly unknown in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  

Here are directions for poet-hikers who want to contemplate life from one of the high points of a gorgeous mountain trail:

  1. Start at Sylvan Lake Resort parking area.
  2. Take trailhead 4 for Black Elk Peak/Little Devil’s Tower. Look for a leaning birch tree that points up the slope.
  3. Follow that path off the trailhead. Hidden at the top over some rocks is a green table and chairs on a flat area.
