What you'll do

You will experience the beautiful Needles HWY, a National Scenic Byway, using snowshoes. This is a unique experience because this popular destination is closed to vehicles during the winter. I will pick you up from your hotel or AirBNB (we host guests at our home if you are interested!) and will have snowshoes available for you. Hike length will depend on your interest in skill. I use my Environmental Science background to highlight local ecology and geology. Afterwards, we can enjoy lunch in Hill City and if you are interested, drop by one of the local wine/beer breweries before I drop you off at your lodging.

Where you'll be

We will start our snowshoeing trip at Sylvan Lake. Nestled at the base of Harney Peak and surrounded by impressive rounded rock formations, Sylvan Lake is one of the most beautiful spots in the Black Hill’s Custer State Park. We will then start our hike down part of the 14 mile long Needles HWY, where we will see granite needles, ponderosa pines, and low rock tunnels. The length of the hike will depend on the group's interest and ability.
