loop/lollipop) This flight leaves our heliport (the only DOT approved and FAA recognized heliport in the Keystone Area) and follows Buckeye Gulch down to the old mining town of Keystone, past the mines to Iron Mountain and the infamous pig-tail bridges and back. After Iron Mountain, this flight continues up Grizzly Bear Creek into the Black Elk Wilderness, just east of the Cathedral Spires and below Black Elk Peak, we then descend the Pine Creek basin to Horse Thief Lake. After Horsethief Lake we follow Elkhorn Mountain past one of the most alpine-esque, hard to reach, areas in the Black Hills to the base of the rarely seen, northwest- granite face of Black Elk Peak and then back to Horsethief Lake, Ingersoll Peak and the heliport.
