Fort Meade Back Country Byway Professional Review and Guide
"This 5-mile Type I byway travels through forested hills on the eastern edge of South Dakota’s Black Hills near Sturgis. The Fort Meade Back Country Byway threads through pine-covered hills on the northeastern edge of the Black Hills, South Dakota’s only mountain range, just east of Sturgis.
It makes a pleasant stop for interstate travelers, and offers hiking, picnicking, camping, and historic sites. The two-lane gravel-surfaced Type I byway is easily driven in a passenger car. Pullouts allow visitors to admire the scenery, go hiking, or inspect historic places. Allow a half hour to drive the road.
