74.9 miles: 1 hours, 17 minutes
Travel through open prairie and over the Cheyenne River as rock formations rise in the distance of Badlands National Park. The canyons and craggy mountains create a stunning contrast to the flat lands of the surrounding landscape. Enjoy the feeling of solitude among the bare rocks and the wide expanse of land while driving down SR 44.

A seemingly never-ending ocean of prairie grasses extends to the horizon on this tranquil journey on SR 44. A few ranches and barns are scattered along the way. The plateaus and rock formations have interesting striations that add lovely hues to the scenery in Badlands National Park.
