Black Hills One Day

Black Hills One Day Itinerary Guide


If you’re trying to take all of the Black Hills in during one day, try this route. Starting in Rapid City, tour the Journey Museum for a historic look at the Black Hills and find your way through Rapid City's City Tour and Historic Districts. Depart Rapid City on Highway 16 on your way to Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Along the way, just two miles from the monument is Keystone, a mountain town visitors love.

After touring America's Shrine of Democracy, depart for Custer State Park, one of the largest state parks in the country, and also the world’s largest mountain carving of the famous Lakota leader Crazy Horse. End the day by heading North on Highway 385 to the historic mining cities of Lead and Deadwood where you’ll still find the Old West spirit still alive.
