Itinerary
  1. Stops at: The Black Hills
    As the audio guides play commentary based on your gps location, you can create your own itinerary along the tour route(s) to match your interests and schedule. Or you can use our trip planners for our suggestions on half, full or multi day itineraries. Some of the many highlights are listed below;
    Duration: 1440 minutes
  2. Stops at: Mount Rushmore National Memorial
    The most famous and recognizable memorial celebrating the nationhood of the USA must be the 4 presidential faces that look out from Mount Rushmore. Though you will have seen it many times depicted on TV, movies and photos, there is no equivalent to seeing it with your own eyes and feeling the scale and depth of the sculpture.
    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included
  3. Stops at: Custer State Park
    Take a leisurely drive through an enormous area of natural habitat of rolling prairie hills with open grasslands and some pine forest. Though the drive is officially only 18-miles long, expect to spend at least 1 hour, but if you enjoy spotting wildlife, its easy to spend 3 or more hours watching. Also explore some of the side roads that branch off the main route.
    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included
  4. Stops at: Devils Tower National Monument
    Devils Tower was always a place of intrigue and fascination since it became the nation's first National Monument. For a multitude of generations before that, and continuing to this day, Native Americans celebrate the site for its spiritual importance. The Tower was thrust into pop culture in the 1970's sci-fi classic as the geographical star of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included

    Duration: 240 minutes
  9. Stops at: Sylvan Lake
    Located along route 87, Sylvan Lake is described as the Jewel of Custer State Park. If time allows, it's very worthwhile to allocate 45 minutes or so to enjoy the relatively easy 1.1 mile trail around the lake. The combination of grassy shores, still lake water and granite formations rising from the water are truly scenic. For more dedicated and prepared hikers, this is also the starting point for the Black Elk Peak trail, a 7 mile loop that rises 1100 feet to South Dakota's highest point.
    Duration: 45 minutes
  10. Stops at: Iron Mountain Road
    The final 45 minute approach of the recommended direction to Mount Rushmore follows the amazing Iron Mountain Road. We'll encounter tunnels, pigtail bridges, superb lookouts and 314 curves. It is a scenic delight! The most magical moment of the drive is the view through the Scovel Tunnel where 4 presidential faces greet you at the other end, like a postcard.
    Duration: 45 minutes
  11. Stops at: Bridal Veil Falls
    This 60 foot, narrow, wispy spray of water sits right beside the road in Spearfish Canyon. It's easy to capture that perfect photo right from the viewing platform.

    One of the most famous wild-west towns in the entire country - Deadwood became legendary for it's gold rush boom and the multitude of characters who we recognize to this day.

    From the tiny ex-sawmill town of Savoy on the Spearfish Canyon Road, Roughlock Falls is an easy and popular spot to visit with an attractive waterfall easily accessed by boardwalk. Extend your visit with a 1 mile stream-side walking trail to the falls from the Spearfish Lodge.
    Duration: 60 minutes
  14. Stops at: Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway
    Spearfish Canyon is a superb 19 mile stretch of road with stunning waterfalls and 1000 foot high limestone walls. This scenic drive connects the town of Spearfish with Savoy and Cheyenne Crossing, following the Spearfish Creek all the way.

  16. Stops at: Door Trail
    The 3/4 mile Door Trail is the most popular as you follow a boardwalk until reaching a notch in the rock - the Door. Through the Door, hikers can venture into the amazing rock formations, characteristic of the Badlands. The shorter option is known as the Window Trail, just 1/4 mile long.
    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included
  17. Stops at: Fossil Exhibit Trail
    This easy 0.25 mile boardwalk is dedicated to the stories of fossils that have been found throughout the park.

When these events are timed just right, bones, teeth and shells especially are preserved to provide us a window to past times. Fossil finds are active to this day.
    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included

    Duration: 60 minutes
    Admission Not Included
  19. Stops at: Roberts Prairie Dog Town
    The Roberts Prairie Dog Town on Sagecreek Rim Rd at the western end of Badlands is the perfect place to watch a whole community of these fun creatures doing their thing. As we approach, there are many stories and tips of unique behavior to watch out for. The more time you have available to simply stay and watch, the more you will enjoy how the town works together.
    Duration: 30 minutes

  20. Stops at: Yellow Mounds Overlook
    One of the best vistas in Badlands National Park, the view from this overlook reveals classic buttes and erosion.
