The Beginning of the Stunning Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway:

Video: Needles Highway in the South Dakota Black Hills

They said it was impossible. They said it couldn't be done. They probably thought he was a little bit nuts for even suggesting it. But in 1919 Peter Norbeck, the "Father of Custer State Park", planned out what would become the infamous Needles Highway on foot and on horseback. The winding path he chose took him through forests, wilderness and rock formations estimated to be more than 2 Billion years old! He chose the path he did to maximize the stunning views of the Black Hills wilderness. And guess what? It wasn't so impossible after all.

This week, we wing it with the format of Wingin' It! as we press record on the #JeepCam and take you along for the twists, the turns, the ups, the downs and the squeezes through cracks that are the Needles Highway on the Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota! We'll travel from Custer State Park to the Black Hills National Forest, skirting the Norbeck Wildlife Preserve and Black Elk Wilderness along the way. And yes, we were there during the first week of Sturgis 2019, so super cool bikes are everywhere!

If you thought Iron Mountain Road was amazing, wait till you see this!
