Getting around the Black Hills can be a little challenging, which is why we offer you a detailed map of the Southern Black Hills, with all it's points of interest, campsites, restrooms, and road names. This is the map I use when plotting out a private tour of the Black Hills of South Dakota. There's so much to see, that you've got to have a plan on how to visit the Black Hills properly, or you could just hire me and I take the work out of it!
The Map of the Black Hills and Beyond
As you can see, for the first timer, navigating the Black Hills of South Dakota can be a little daunting. This is why we do it for you! Take a look at the map. Specifically the roads heading into the North and East of the Park.
Most smaller tours and individuals enter after visiting Mt. Rushmore at the top of the map. Then many take Iron Mountain Road from there until it meets up with 36, and then head west on 16A until reaching the visitors center. Here is where you should stop and get more information.
Black Hills Lakes and StreamsAt the bottom of the map Is the halfway point through the wildlife loop road. Continuing around the "U" you'll come out again at 16A. Turn right at 16 A and then left on Needles Highway. Now you'll be heading up the famous road of twists, turns, out-of-this-world rocks, trees, lakes and streams of the Black Hills until reaching the Needles Eye Tunnel. Take it slow and take it all in. This is one of the most beautiful roads in our Country.
