Nemo Road is a quick cut-across to more Black Hills riding fun
Nemo Road is the in-between motorcycle road in the Black Hills. It goes between 385 and Nemo. It has scenery that in-between the hills and open farmland. And it’s short. Not a must-ride road, but a good one nonetheless to cut across to Vanocker Canyon or take a long-rambling way into Rapid City. Your choice. It’s your ride.
This is the road across from the Boondox – not the one across from the Sugar Shack. This is Nemo Road going into… you guessed it, Nemo. It’s 13 miles and takes about 18 minutes from 385 to Nemo.
This is not one of those essential must-rides in the Black Hills. It’s just another nice little road with some nice, little curves, and some nice little scenery. It’s especially nice to ride when you want to get away from that car speeding up and slowing down on 385 because they are live tweeting their car ride through the Hills. Take Nemo Road across to Vanocker Canyon or continue south on Nemo Road from Nemo and wind up in Rapid City.
The Bottom Line
Get off the beaten path and head over the Nemo for a couple minutes. Vanocker Canyon is an awesome ride. Check it out here: Vanocker Canyon Ride. Nemo Road is a great way to get there.
