For scenic drives you must do the Iron Mountain Road (drive it from south to north so that the tunnels face Mount Rushmore), and also the Needles Highway. To see wildlife do the Wildlife Loop Road. For hikes, we did Black Elk Peak, the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains. This is a 7 mile round trip but awesome view. Cathedral Spires is another awesome hike we did, and also Little Devils Tower. My family spend 2 nights at the park doing each of the hikes Intalked about and also drove the three scenic drives twice each. There are many more hiking trails to do as well. The website for Custer State Park has them all listed, describing them and eating their difficulty. Enjoy your trip.
