Written Directions

In Deadwood, the exit for 385 South is a bit tricky to find due to the construction at the time. From Highway 14 take Lee street one block south and you are on Highway 85 south. Outside of Deadwood, take left on Highway 385 south. Once on 385 south the road will continue all the way to Hill City.

Scenery

The road winds itself through the Black Hills from Deadwood to Hill City. The scenery is at times breath taking and a stop at the Pactola Lake Dam is highly recommended.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is in most parts a two lane road with forest on both sides. Wildlife is abundant, so is cattle. Drive only what can be seen. The road has straights and twists.

Tourism Opportunities

I road it in the spring where most tourist opportunities were closed. If you ride the road in the sommer months, there are plenty of roadside attractions, ranging from restaurants and fishing opportunities to advertised caves, burnout pits, and micro amusement parks. The area offers lots of trail heads and dirt roads for dual sport exploration.
