Written Directions

The end points are Orin, WY & Valentine, NE. Just take US 20 between them.

Scenery

This route has a lot of scenery to offer - rock outcroppings, mini-mountains, sand hills, pronghorn sheep, mule deer, coyotes. Much better scenery than might be expected in Nebraska!

Drive Enjoyment

Good pavement but some seams in W. NE., nice hills and sweeping turns.

Tourism Opportunities

Not much out here. Most towns have gas and some food but this is pretty remote. Good motels and amenities in Chadron, NE.

I traveled this route in summer, 2012. Hot and muggy. While there are various natural and small town sights along the way, it is hard to stay alert as so much of the route is rather plain. Generally the road is good surface, often 4 lanes, and traffic light. I mention the traffic as most places in the eastern US have traffic on the roads all the time and people at every stop. It's hard to explain, but I felt safer when in the towns. I would prefer it to the interstate because you can travel at a fast or slow speed as you desire.

I've taken this route several times and I can't get enough of it. If you have time, stop in at Fort Robinson and catch a bit of history.
