Discovering Devil’s Tower in Wyoming on Your Motorcycle

The Devil’s Tower National Monument is a must-see geological phenomenon in northeast Wyoming, and there are a couple of routes you can take to make the most out of the ride there. The roads lead you past hilly plains, ranch and farmlands, rivers, pine forests, and massive rock formations. 

Before you take to Wyoming’s open sky in the saddle of your bike, read on to find out the best places to check out on these Devil’s Tower motorcycle routes. Our bike-riding legal team at Law Tigers, America’s motorcycle lawyers, loves to explore the western highways and byways, so we’ve put together a few of our favorite rides for you.

Start in Sturgis, South Dakota

The ride begins in Sturgis, the motorcycle capital of the world, where thousands of bikers come together every year to ride, watch bike shows, swap stories, and make new friends. If you take your trip in August, you can join the festivities before hitting the road to Devil’s Tower. 

To start your journey, take I-90 north toward Spearfish.

Spearfish Canyon Highway

When you arrive in Spearfish, hop off of I-90 and take the Spearfish Canyon Highway to Cheyenne Crossing. Bridal Falls is halfway down and has accessible parking, making it the perfect place to stop and rest while admiring the beautiful waterfalls. 

At Cheyenne Crossing, take Route 85 to Four Corners and head back north toward Sundance via Route 585. The highway meanders pretty far south, but the detour is worth it for the scenery, twisting turns, and switchbacks. You’ll also find many trails to hike and places to camp along the way.

The Lasso (Alternate Route)

For a more direct route and a smoother ride, you can take I-90 toward Beulah to ride “The Lasso.” You’ll exit the interstate and drive up Route 111 toward the tiny town of Aladdin, where you’ll start heading west on a loop leading to Devil’s Tower. 

You can stop in Hulett, a small town situated on the Belle Fourche River. Bikers are welcome, especially in August when the city hosts its annual motorcycle rally. 

You’ll see more rock formations, cliffs, ranches, and small towns dotting the countryside on this ride. During the fall, the aspens, oaks, and birches paint a stunning picture of blended gold, yellow, and orange. The roads are mostly flat and open, with gradual changes in elevation and easy turns.

Devil’s Tower

Devil’s Tower is a 1,267-foot high butte in the Black Hills, a rock-climbing mecca and popular destination for tourists from all over the world. President Theodore Roosevelt established Devil’s Tower as the first national monument in the United States. Its name resulted from a miscommunication between early explorers and the local native tribes. The Native American names for the monument include “Bear’s House” or “Bear’s Lodge.” 

When you reach the Tower, you can hike the trails around its base or watch rock climbers take on the cliffs. You can learn more about the unique formation at the visitor center, including local folklore from the native tribes. 

The Belle Fourche River has multiple campsites along its banks if you want to commune with nature, or you can move on to the next stop in Sundance.


Sundance was a trading post on the edge of the Wild West in the late 1800s, and it’s the town where the famous Sundance Kid spent time in jail. This historical town has deep roots in Native American culture and the pioneer era, which you can learn more about at the Crook County Museum.
