Hard to beat the Needles on The Needles Highway (Hwy 87) when exploring Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The name comes from the needle-like granite formations, which seem to pierce the horizon. While not RV-friendly, Needles offers wonderful vistas, climbing and hiking opportunities and is arguably the most easy-to-recognize road in the state. The Needles Highway is a spectacular drive through pine and spruce forests, meadows surrounded by birch and aspen, and rugged granite mountains. Definitely worth paying a visit. Check it out!
Very beautiful country. I would've rather rode my motorcycle down it instead of driving my wife's car. A couple spots are pretty narrow but it was well worth the drive.
