Scenic Drives

Needles Highway

Can a drive take your breath away?

Discover some of the most beautiful vistas in the region—and you don’t even have to leave your car. Somebody believed that the beauty of the Hills shouldn’t be paved over, so the roads went around and around and up and down—and straight through the mountain. Today, these roads afford some of the most breathtaking views in the park. But, drive slowly and leave time for pictures.
