We will be spending 2-3 days in the Black Hills enroute to Yellowstone.
We plan to spend 1 complete day in Custer State Park driving the wildlife loop road, horseback riding and maybe doing a short hike.
Of course we will be at Mt. Rushmore and see the lighting 1 night.
Is the 1880 train worthwhile? I have been on the Durango-Silverton ride and loved it. I would guess the Hill City is a much simplier, flatter ride, but should we include it.
Also, is driving through Spearfish Canyon on the way to Yellowstone a good idea. We plan to also visit Devil's tower and make it 1/2 way between the Black Hills and Yellowstone on that day.
Thanks for any help. This whole sight has great information.
