  • To me it was worth the drive to see the expansive prairie. Mind you it is 8 miles off rt. 385 on a dirt road. Be sure to clock the miles when you get off the highway, or you will go by it and have to turn around. Most people won't it is worth it, but I'd you key your mind go you can see the plains as they once were.
