“Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

the road is white knuckling at times but it was a great road to travel - explore the passages but be careful of other cars! Worth the trip in my view

“Worth the time - expect delays.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Follow the speed limit, everyone EXCEPT the drive should enjoy the scenery. Find a place(s) to stop for the driver to enjoy. There are too many places where the cliff is right at the edge of the road with no wall or guard rail. This side trip is well worth the extra time it takes to get through. Road closed in winter.

We come to the hills to ride motorcycle. This is always one of the roads we travel. I never get tired of the beautiful views. The views are breathtaking.

“A must while in Custer State Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

If you have limited time during your visit to Custer State Park, most definitely take this loop/highway. You'll see impressive views and rock formations. I found a greater appreciation for the workers who formed the roadways and tunnels.

“Wonderful”

Wow... beautiful...can't wait to come back one day and see this again. Rode the motorcycle on this loop and loved every minute of it. Watch out for those hairpin turns...
