“A Must-Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This road is beautiful and quite scary too. Lots of very loopy roads at high elevation. Terrific views and cool little tunnels that made me glad I wasn't driving a bigger vehicle. The tunnels aren't long ones, so it's not too scary for the claustrophobic. The scariness just comes from the height, and the other drivers that are going too fast. There are some places to pull off the road and take pictures, too.

“Take your time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a very scenic and enjoyable drive. Just lollygag along and take it all in. It is a laid back way to get from the State GAme Lodge area to Keystone or Mount Rushmore.

The road is great very scenic with the Piggly Wiggly Bridges and wonderful landscape to view. A good way to start you way up to view Mount Rushmore and the surrounding areas.

“Great Views and wonderful fall colours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We had a wonderful drive along the Iron Mountain Road. The views are great on all of the scenic byways in the park and this is no exception. Quite up and down so make sure you have enough fuel and enjoy the views

Winding, great motorcycle road. Lovely wooden switch back bridges. Go in evening and watch out for all the deer.
