Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Get in touch with nature at Cathedral Spires Hiking Trail and Sylvan Lake. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Big Badlands Overlook and Little Devil's Tower Trail. Explore Custer's surroundings by going to Buffalo Gift Shop (in Wall), Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Panorama Point Overlook) and Hot Springs (Cascade Falls and Swimming Hole, The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, & more). And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, Head underground at Jewel Cave National Monument, and explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

To find maps and tourist information, use the Custer road trip planning website .

Denver to Custer is an approximately 4-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or drive. Traveling from Denver in July, things will get a bit cooler in Custer: highs are around 80°F and lows about 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
