Badlands NP to Rapid City, SD


Recommended Posts

Yes, you should definitely use hiway 44, its a great road & nice drive through open range land. Its all 2 lane road, but it has good shoulders and very little traffic until you get close to Rapid City. Use the 16 bypass (Elk Vale Rd) to jump from 44 to 79 on the east side of RC. I don't like to drive my MH into downtown RC, but you don't need to if you're headed to Hermosa.

Its been a few years, but I used to have a summer home up there and used 44 frequently with my MH & toad. The quality of the asphalt surface will vary from brand new to needing resurfaced, depending on their schedule. They do new overlays in sections every few years, on a rotating basis.
