About this activity

Over the Hills & Beyond the Imagination!

Hop onboard for a two hour and fifteen minute round trip through the scenic Black Hills

Imagine yourself immersed in the staggering beauty of the Black Hills of Western South Dakota! Imagine you're gliding over the rugged landscape aboard a vintage steam train, like those that helped settle the Great American West!

Located near Mt. Rushmore National Monument and Crazy Horse Memorial, the locomotive offers a western experience like no other. Feel the power. Hear the bellow of the engine and the whine of the whistle as it winds it's way through the scenic hills between Hill City and Keystone... and back again.
