This loop takes you out on Hwy 50 past the interstate a couple miles and then North to Spink, SD (don't blink or you'll miss it Spink, SD). From there you head east all the way to Akron, IA just across the river into Iowa. Returning on the same route until just past the Clay Rural Water tower. Heading South you will connect back up with SD Hwy 50. A couple miles to the west you head South on Hwy 11 and come back into Elk Point. Follow the Burbank Road back to Vermillion.
