iron creek lake
This little 24 acre lake is a great place to cool off in the summer. Was this hill really The Needles? (8:32 PM, 57°F), Next Black Hills Expedition                      Prior Black Hills Expedition. It looked like it would be easy to get turned around and lost in this territory. To SPHP, it seemed just ridiculous. Iron Creek Lake, South Dakota fishing report, rainbow trout fly fishing forecast, fishing season updates, fly shop and fishing guides, and fly-fishing weather. SPHP reviewed the maps again. Sooner or later Lupe had to come to USFS Road No. Lots of great fishing and very quiet, especially during the week. While it is off the beaten tourism path, a trip to the lake is just a 20-minute excursion south of Spearfish on a well-maintained gravel road. Lupe soon reached the base of the rock formation. The mountain wasn’t particularly high or prominent. The puddles were of little interest for her, except as occasional sources of mineral water. So easy and free! SPHP got back in the G6. A short drive brought Lupe to Iron Creek Lake, a small lake hidden at the end of a gravel road (3:36 PM, 70°F). There is a single store available for basic needs and simple food. To get to The Needles, Lupe needed to stay up on the ridge, although she would have to drop temporarily down into a couple of saddles along the way. The road passed to the W of Citadel Rock before curling E and climbing to the top of a ridge. Lake-Link Members have access to 2,740 high-quality topographical lake maps from Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin with Lake-Link's Map Viewer system. By the time Lupe reached the top of the S hill, it was decision time. The batteries were dead! Lupe grinned, but said nothing as SPHP started driving slowly N again. Electricity in the cabins and very limited cell service. Maybe Lupe could still climb The Needles? You have to drive a dirt road ~12 miles to get there which is a … You have to drive a dirt road ~12 miles to get there which is a deterrent for most people (and motorcycles). 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. Now, here, back in the Black Hills of South Dakota, there was no way up to the top of the very first little peak she tried! It was already 4:50 PM (69°F). That was encouraging! At first, the terrain along the ridge seemed encouraging, but after 0.25 mile or so, Lupe came to a dense part of the forest. The trail circling is just about one mile in length, making the lake small enough to prohibit wakes and high-speed watercraft. Getting to the top of Beartown Hill (5,880 ft.) took hardly any time at all. Iron Creek is close enough to Spearfish to be able to go into town and buy what you need but far enough that it can be considered "off the beaten path". The climb was moderately steep, but without all the big boulders and deadfall that had slowed her down on the S hill. SPHP hoped she wouldn’t cliff out, and she didn’t. Electricity in the cabins and very limited cell service. View the campground map to locate your perfect spot. The lake looked great to Lupe! 626.1 at a point a mile E of Citadel Rock. This The Needles was located about 2 miles NNE of Beartown Hill.

For a while, SPHP wasn’t certain if Lupe had crossed Beaver Creek, or if she had only made it over a dried up tributary in a side canyon. Lupe and SPHP stayed up on The Needles as long as the sun remained above the horizon. The ridge Lupe was on rose toward the SW.  A check of the topo map showed that Lupe should probably follow this ridge toward the lower hill.
