  • Take a slow drive along the Needles Highway (amazing granite spires jutting into the sky). With stops at Needle's Eye, Cathedral Spires and at several turnouts for photo ops . . . and of course the 'best' tunnel in the Hills . . . Tunnel #5. Keep your camera ready there can be wildlife popping up at any time. 
  • Stopping mid-day at the beautiful Sylvan Lake for a rest stop, some photos and a picnic lunch. 
  • Then it's off to tour the largest State Park in the U.S -- Custer State Park.

Custer State Park in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota is full of lush forests, quiet and serene meadows, and majestic mountains. This 71,000-acre state park is also home to one of the world's largest publicly-owned bison herds 1,300 strong.

DAY 1 - CUSTER STATE PARK  -  BUFFALO ROUNDUP  + Arts Festival
 September 29, 2017   6:30 am pickup at your Rapid City hotel. We provide a bag chair, fruit, OJ, bottled water & snacks and a picnic lunch.

One of the Top Events in the United States Custer, South Dakota's annual Buffalo Roundup and Arts Festival. The Buffalo Roundup is part of Custer State Park's management plan to maintain a healthy balance between the number of bison and the available range land forage. The park can only sustain a certain number of bison, based on the condition of the grassland and how much food is available. The Buffalo Roundup also allows for some of the animals to be sorted out of the herd, they are then sold at an auction in November. After the Roundup (11:00 am) we travel to the State Game Lodge. There for the next three + hours, you can enjoy live entertainment as you stroll the heritage arts and crafts exhibits at the Arts Festival. And Western/Native American entertainment is provided under the big top. We return you to your hotel @ 3:30 pm. 


DAY 2 - SPEARFISH CANYON and the Northern Hills  
 September 30, 2017 - 9:00am pickup - We provide bottled water, fees, snacks and picnic lunch.

Spearfish Canyon is the Northern Hill's number one natural attraction. A great spot for wildlife enthusiasts, as the diverse array of plant life provides a comfortable home for deer, mountain goats, porcupines and bobcats. It winds through the canyon for nearly 20 miles from the city of Spearfish to Cheyenne Crossing. Built on top of an ancient rail bed, the highway affords visitors views of pristine natural wonders and historical treasures. Near the end of the canyon is the old sawmill town of Savoy. 

  • Spearfish Falls is slightly off the beaten path, but well worth the walk. It is located at the base of Spearfish Canyon at Savoy. There is a trail that will guide you to the bottom of the canyon and take you beneath a canopy of trees as you approach the roaring waters of Spearfish Falls. Be sure to wear good shoes as the trail can be slippery at times. 
  • Cascading approximately 60 feet, Bridal Veil Falls is the most accessible waterfall in the canyon. The Falls flows intensely in the spring and slows considerably in late summer and fall. it is located adjacent to a large parking lot to accommodate sightseers. An observation platform has been installed to optimal viewing and photos. 
  • Roughlock Falls, a breathtaking multi-tiered waterfall along Little Spearfish Canyon. Pioneers traveling down the canyon used to lower their wagons down the drop by rough-locking the wheels to prevent them from rolling freely - hence the name of the falls.

This spectacular road ride features biking along some of the most scenic roads in the Black Hills; roads designed for the sole purpose of enjoyment. Ride through rock tunnels with views of Mt. Rushmore, down spiraling "pigtail bridges," and descend through the towering granite spires on Needles Highway. This tour is an all day bike tour, departing in the morning from Rapid City, with complimentary hotel pickup in Rapid City or along the way, and includes bike rental, helmet, and refreshments.  It is customizable as far as route and distance.

On this Black Hills bicycle tour, we hit some of the hills' best gems: Sylvan Lake, Needles Highway, Iron Mt. Road, and Mount Rushmore. The tour starts at beautiful Lakota Lake. It begins with a long climb up to Peter Norbeck Overlook for the first panoramic view of Mount Rushmore.  After a brief stop at the overlook, you commence a six mile downhill descent that is arguably the best section of road riding anywhere. It comprises of multiple tunnels blasted to frame Mount Rushmore and numerous log bridges that spiral down the hillside earning their name “pigtail bridges.” The smooth asphalt road also splits a couple of times into single lane shoulder-less paths through the forest that are sure to earn an ear-to-ear grin.

These unique features lead to the base of the hill that Mt. Rushmore sits atop. After the steep climb up, you’ll be ready for a break and a nice lunch with a view of the famous faces. Passing by the side profile view of George Washington, the road leads back behind Rushmore through some staggering rock pinnacles and formations as you make your way to Sylvan Lake and the start of Needles Highway. The climb up to Sylvan earns the elevation gain for a 10+ mile thrilling descent on Needles Highway past the Cathedral Spires, through several more rock tunnels; a fun section of road that you’ll be sharing in stories for years to come. You then have a nice moderate and beautiful road past Center Lake and the Black Hills Playhouse back to Lakota Lake.

This tour includes lunch and complimentary hotel pick-up and drop-off.
