4. Needles Highway
Here’s another amazing scenic route through the Black Hills. Towards the top, there are breathtaking rock formations, some of which have been tunneled through creating the winding roadway. That is why locals refer to this drive as “Threading the Needle” the Cathedral spires create an amazing landscape and should not be missed. At the top is Sylvan Lake where there is a lodge and private cabins along this beautiful lake that make this area a seasonal hot spot. They shot parts of “National Treasure” here and I have pulled a few Rainbow Trout out of this lake for supper.
