Starting my planning. We will be doing a day trip in July, starting in Custer. Thoughts on which direction to travel? Toward White Elephant or toward Hill City?

North towards Hill City for sure. You can see Crazy Horse from the trail plus get to a few of the tunnels.

Thanks so much for the info!!! Are the tunnels on the way to Hill City or are they past Hill city heading toward Mystic? I would definitely like to see at least one of those.
Do you think from Custer to Hill City would be a 4 hour trip? or should I rent the bikes all day?

From Custer to Hill City is 15 miles. The round trip, I would estimate for 4 hours which would count for breaks and pictures.
