Wind your way through the Spearfish Canyon to see waterfalls and flowing streams and the Needles Highway full of granite spires found in Custer State Park. Then, drive past hills covered in trees in Vanocker Canyon outside of Rapid City and Boulder Canyon between Sturgis and Deadwood. For wide-open spaces and views of one-of-a-kind formations, add the Badlands Loop and SD Hwy 34 to WY Hwy 24 (Belle Fourche to Devil’s Tower) to your list.
A Biker’s Paradise
Whether you are an enthusiast or an admirer, the Black Hills are a biker’s paradise. Filled with rallies for every kind of motor-operated bike, riders will enjoy their time at races, shows, concerts, and more at Supermoto, the 3 Wheeler Rally and BTW National Trike-In and – of course – the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Some of the most beautiful drives in America can be found in the Black Hills, and there is no better way to experience the scenic paradise than riding a motorcycle or an ATV/UTV. Indian Motorcycle Sturgis offers rentals including motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, and Slingshots. Whether you are winding through the scenic byways or taking the backroads through hundreds of miles of trails, you’re going to love the outdoor adventure that awaits.
The famous 1880 Train provides the opportunity to experience train travel as it was a century ago. The Railroad Depots in Hill City and Keystone are departure points for one of the oldest operational steam-powered passenger trains in the country. Feel the rumble of a locomotive and hear the lonesome whine of the train’s whistle as you experience a ride through the scenic Hills.
Rally for Everyone
Car enthusiasts from all over the nation come to the Black Hills every year to share their love of automotive builds across models over the decades – the only difference between them is the weekend their rally is held in the Black Hills. From the classics to current models, Cruisers, Corvettes, Studebakers, Mustangs and more will call the Hills their home for part of this summer.
