Black Hills South Dakota Needles Highway

Black Hills

The Black Hills (also known as Paha Sapa) are one of the most photogenic areas in South Dakota, home to the legendary Deadwood, South Dakota to  Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorials. The Black Hills of South Dakota boast a variety of attractions and activities for any weekend getaway or family vacation. The area has one of the highest concentrations of national parks and monuments in the country.

The Black Hills are in western South Dakota and northeastern Wyoming, covering an area 125 miles long and 65 miles wide. Enjoy yourself while viewing the many rugged rock formations, canyons and gulches, open grassland parks, tumbling streams, and deep blue lakes.

Custer State Park provides a multitude of scenic byways and hiking/biking trails to access this wonderful landscape and abundant wildlife. The area is also just a day trip away from the natural wonders of the Badlands National Park and Devils Tower National Monument.

Called "Paha Sapa" by the Lakota Sioux, the Black Hills area is claimed as sacred ancestral land by nearly two dozen Native American tribes. A variety of museums and historical sites provide insight into local Native American history and heritage.

Each August, the Black Hills and all of South Dakota  welcome half a million motorcycle enthusiasts as host of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The Black Hills are a small, isolated mountain range rising from the Great Plains of North America in western South Dakota.  Harney Peak, which rises to 7,244 feet (2,208 m), is the range's highest summit. 

The Black Hills encompass the Black Hills National Forest and are home to the tallest peaks of continental North America east of the Rockies.  The hills are named Black Hills because of their dark appearance from a distance, as they were covered in trees.
