Newton Hills Route – CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING 5/15/19
One of the tightest twistie’s around is just south of Canton. It’s not a long trek but make sure you’ve got enough 91 to make it through as the towns along the way won’t have what you’re looking for.
This route will start with a few wide curves as it gains a bit of height. Then the fun starts as it dumps you into Newton Hills. You can duck off into the state park if you want a slow but pretty ride through some trees, or just keep going until you find the stop sign at 288th St. Head east and you’ll find a few more curves before the next stop sign just South of Fairview. Here you have a few options. You can go back the way you came, and twist through Newton Hills a few times; or you could head north through Fairview and get a decent view of the Big Sioux River from the bridge just north of town. After taking in the view head west past Inspiration Hills to get back to Canton via some relaxed, sweeping curves.
However, my preferred route is to head south. After a bit of straight but steep hills and two wide curves you’ll find yourself in Hudson, SD. Once there pop into Waddy’s for some food or just drink your lunch with one of their fantastic Bloody Mary’s. Pick either route back to Canton as you really can’t go wrong.
