*These roads are combined as a single “challenge unit” and all must be ridden
**Southbound has the advantage of putting the ocean and scenic pull-offs on the right
*** To complete this challenge unit we suggest 335 south to Camp Wood, 337 east to Leaky, 336 north to Highway 41, Highway 41 east to US 83, US 83 south back to Leaky, 337 east to Medina. Or the same roads in the opposite direction.
****We strongly recommend taking this road east from Custer to Mt. Rushmore for the awesome views of the monument through the tunnels.
