Rides & Trips
Most rides and trips are big-budget items so you might
want to limit the slections on this list to only those you are most
The most common rides are those you might take in your own
There are many scenic roads in the Black Hills including the Needles
Highway, Spearfish Canyon and the Custer State Park Wildlife Loop. The
Badlands Loop, Highway 244 from Interior to Wall, is another great ride.
Most of the rides listed in this section
are special and may not be for everyone. Horseback
riding, for example, can be great fun, but if you are not used to it, a
couple of hours on a horse can leave you in pain for days. Imagine
sitting for two hours with your legs spread over a 55-gallon drum and
you know what we mean.
Others, such as snowmobile or ATV riding, may not
be suitable for smaller children,. Also these activities may
only appeal to enthusiats who bring their own equipment.
Finally, we have listed bus tours here even though they are
not "rides" in the same sense of other activities here. But
some families may prefer this type of sightseeing which becomes more of
a family activity without one of the parents stuck behind the wheel.
