Can just imagine the buffaloes roaming across the vast grasslands. The black mountains giving a depth to the scenery. Wonderful on a motorcycle and you do not have to wear a helmet!

The National Forest is such a treasure of wildlife and scenic views. You will not find a speck of trash on the ground, people just have respect for these national treasures. It is a scenic ride, you can see Harney's point. It is a relaxing ride with plenty of areas to stop and take pictures. Worthwhile experience!

Saw some Buffalo, went to Mt. Rushmore and enjoyed the rolling hills South of the Black Hills and Harney Peak giving you a panoramic view of the entire Black Hills.

Absolutely beautiful. A must-see. My husband and I rode our motorcycle through the area and were in awe with how beautiful the scenery is. We can't wait to return.

Spent three days driving thru the Black Hills and saw such beautiful scenery, stopped in some wonderful small towns for lunch and shopping, went to Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Wonderland Caves, Sylvan Lake and Bear Country. So many things to do in this area and driving to any of them offers breathtaking views.

A quiet ride or walk in the country close to the city. A true national treasure. I think we should give it back to the native americans. I know why they didn't want to give it up.
