Mountain Coaster and More at Rush Mountain Adventure Park

The Black Hills were founded by prospectors looking for gold, and so it’s only fitting that we have our own unique design of gold jewelry. Henri LeBeau, a Frenchman who came to the Black Hills in the gold rush, was the original designer of Black Hills Gold. Legend has it that he was lost in the woods, where he eventually fell asleep and dreamt of brooks and vineyards in France. Upon his return to town he gave up prospecting in favor of jewelry making. Today, Black Hills Gold is known for its distinctive grape and leaf design with green and rose colored accents inspired by LeBeau’s dream.

Dinner at The Stables at Palmer Gulch

The last stop on your list is The Stables at Palmer Gulch for an authentic Chuckwagon Dinner. Saddle up or take a backseat in one of their horse-drawn covered wagons. Your meal will be prepared perfectly over a campfire in a remote mountain meadow. You’ll enjoy a real cowboy music show performed by local waddies and ranchers under a big South Dakota sky.
