We’ve selected this one because it provides excellent panoramic views, and because we talked to several families with children who said that because of the sweeping views, the trail rated high with them. Crow Peak Trail is a popular hike. The trail winds up to the mountain’s top, providing sweeping vistas at the summit. Crow Peak is so named because of a battle once fought here between the Crow and Sioux Indians. Appropriately, the mountain in Sioux tongue, Paha Karitukateyapi, translates to “the place where the Sioux killed the Crow.” Crow Peak is an igneous intrusion and was formed in the same manner as Bear Butte and several other peaks in the area.
