This tour also includes traveling to the South Unit and touring the White River Visitors Center on the Pine Ridge Reservation and a stop for photos at the ghost town of Scenic.


The Lakota gave this land its name, “Mako Sica,” meaning “land bad.” The Badlands National Park consists of 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest protected mixed grass prairie in the United States. It is desolation at its truest, where you can look for miles and see no sign of civilization.

This land has been so ruthlessly ravaged by wind and water that it has become picturesque. The Badlands are a wonderland of bizarre, colorful spires and pinnacles, massive buttes and deep gorges. Erosion of the Badlands reveals sedimentary layers of different colors: purple and yellow (shale), tan and gray (sand and gravel), red and orange (iron oxides) and white (volcanic ash).

We pick you up at your hotel at 9am. We first visit the South Unit of the Park; the White River Visitors Center is located just inside the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The Center is staffed by Oglala Park Service and National Park Service and includes both Lakota cultural and geographic information about the Badlands. Leaving here we stop for photos and some history about the ghost town of Scenic.

From here we proceed to the Badlands village of Interior (pop 90) and stop at the iconic watering hole "Wagon Wheel Bar and Grill" to enjoy some of the local fare .  .  . Buffalo Burgers . . . excellent flavor with less cholesterol and less fat than beef (beef burgers and other food available).  

After lunch we journey to the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and Information Center. Be prepared to revisit the 50's/60's Cold War, including routine 'duck and cover' drills. 
 
At the North Unit, near the entrance to the park is Cedar Pass were you will have the option to walk the short Window and Door trails.  Then your guide drives the Loop, stopping at several more overlooks on your way to the Ben Reifel Visitor Center.  Proceeding on you'll stop for photos and views at many of the overlooks and a stop at the majestic Pinnacles Overlook were we exit the Park. 

The final stop will be at the Wall Drug Store, a unique tourist attraction that offers shopping for anything you may think of.  It also offers the famous 5-cent coffee and free Ice Water. And here we treat you to some of the best home made ice cream in the west . . . delicious!  

We return you to Rapid City about 5:00pm.  It may be a long day but there is sooo much to see!

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.
