Ordinary cars cannot handle the roads here, but serious mountain bikers, hikers, and 4X4'ers will have a field day.&nbsp;</p> Eric Peterson/ Frommer's Travel

From the Island in the Sky Visitor Center, it is 150 miles by road to the Needles, but it is only 15 miles as the crow flies.</span></font></font></font></p> Denise Knutson/ Frommer's Travel
