This drive is very scenic. Lots of curves and one lane bridges through rock formation. Take your time and enjoy the view. Some great places to take pictures.

Very much enjoyed our drive on the Iron Mountain Road. Quiet, not too busy and very scenic. We went at the very end of a long summer day and had the road to ourselves.

We uses this road from the state game lodge to Mount Rushmore. We went early morning so it was quiet and we could stop and take photos.

Motorcycle, Black Hills, beautiful scenery. Nothing like it. Will come back again and again for the scenery. My husband likes the challenge of the pig-tails. Very fun ride.
