West Highway 44 starts on the west side of Rapid City, coming off of Jackson Blvd. Take Highway 44 west for about 16 miles or so until the end of Hwy 44 ... where it comes to Hwy 385, which goes to Deadwood (north) or Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park (south).
Beautifully scenic highway with turns and twists and ups and downs. Watch for wildlife as you'll be driving through the Black Hills national forest with its numerous lakes, streams, and diverse topography.
Average 2 lane highway with some passing lanes. During the Sturgis Rally, this Highway is very busy, as are most of the highways in the Black Hills. Ride safe!
All kinds of things to see and do along the way: caves, wildlife, fish hatchery and beautiful scenic pull-offs and a sweet little tavern called "Rimrock Happy Tavern." Also, Rapid City offers tons of choices too.
