Keep an eye out for the locals!

Allow yourself an hour or two to make your way through this area, since the location of the buffalo herds will dictate the speed at which you can complete the loop.

You’ll have chances to spot buffalo, coyote, whitetail, pronghorn, prairie dogs, and more as you wind through the hills of the park.

This ride is the perfect add-on to Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road.

You can easily take a full day to explore Custer State Park.
