We took this road in April 2013. It was amazing! Luckily we were there in the off season so we didn't see many other cars. I can imagine it would be a tough ride with more people on it (lots of sharp corners, blind curves, one car tunnels). Great views and well worth the drive!

If you love curvy roads and great scenery, then this road is a must!! It is a challenge so be careful but it takes you through part of Custer State Park and you might see buffalo. There are several stops for refreshments. In the summer the fields are filled with wild bergamot!

Peter Norbeck planned this road on horseback before Mt. Rushmore came into being. It is apart of the marvel of being able to frame "The Faces" in the tunnels and ride the pigtail bridges originally traveled by Model Ts. Take your time and enjoy. It is a narrow, two lane road with some spots only one lane. The road takes you from the base of Mt. Rushmore to the east entrance of Custer State Park. We like to ride this road with our house guests for a memorable day.

Iron Mountain Road is a very scenic drive. There are some great places to pull off and explore, and take in the spectacular views of Mount Rushmore and the surrounding hills. Our kids developed a love of "rock climbing" along this drive! There is a rock arch you'll drive under, and this is a great spot to pull over, climb to the top of the arch, and enjoy the scenery!
