Mount Roosevelt Memorial
While in Deadwood last week I decided to check out Mount Roosevelt Memorial. To get to the trailhead take US highway 85 northbound out of Deadwood. In a couple miles you’ll take a left onto Mt Roosevelt Road, which is the same turn for The Lodge at Deadwood. About two and a half miles up this gravel road you’ll find the sign for Mount Roosevelt Memorial & Picnic Ground.
