Devils Tower. 170 miles Go west on US 85/14A
towards Wyoming and turn right on US 14A – Spearfish Canyon. You
will come across Savoy, and Spearfish Canyon Lodge. Here next to the
highway is Spearfish Falls, but you can’t see it from the
highway, you must take a short hike down to it. After that, go across
the road and go for 1 mile to Roughlock Falls. You can either take the
road or the hiking trail. Continue to Spearfish. Turn left at the stop
into town. After the right hand curve and down the hill, you can turn
left at Grant Street and go 1 block to the Flour Garden Bakery. It is
worth it. Back to the ride, keep going towards Belle Fourche on US 85.
Turn left at the 4 way stop on the south side of town, towards Hulett,
WY and Devils Tower (highway 34, then 24 in WY). Keep going on 24 past

Go towards downtown, and turn right at the stoplight. Go
straight thru the next light and then right at the 3rd
light. Turn left on US 385 and go to Brownsville. You will know when
you are there by the Ferris Wheels alongside the road. Turn left onto
Nemo Road, and continue past Nemo to Norris Peak Road where you will
take a right. This will take you to Johnson Siding and a right turn.
Follow highway 44 back to 385 and turn left. Go past Pactola and
Sheridan lakes to a 3-way junction called 3 Forks. Turn left on US 16
and go to Keystone and Mt. Rushmore. After Mt Rushmore, go west on 244

area. At US 385 turn left for about a block and take another left onto

want, pay the $10 to ride Needles Highway, which is a beautiful twisty
road too. If you do, follow 87 to US16A then turn left. US 16A is
Iron Mtn. Road. This famous road has the pigtail bridges, and tunnels
that frame Mt Rushmore. This will take you back to Keystone. Here
we will stop for lunch, and ride the Hill City - Keystone road the
opposite way. At Keystone turn right at 385 and head back to Deadwood.
