Badlands NP to Rapid City, SD

Question

Has anyone travelled SD44 from Badlands NP to Rapid City, SD in a MH?  We’re heading to Hermosa, SD and I want to know if I could take 44 or should I go back to I-90 to head west.

 

Thanks, Bill.

SD44 is marked for large commercial vehicles. Have never used it. Can you ask anyone about the quality of the highway?  To Hermosa, sure seems like the way to go.

We haven’t done it for about 12 years. As I remember from the east headed west there is a steep grade. Just stop and shift down to a low gear maybe 2nd or 3rd. You can start low and go up if needed. Save your brakes that way. The west end is fairly level. I will say that we were not very impressed, but it is worth the drive since you are going that way.

Thanks for your replies.

We are going to take SD44. I talked to another camper late yesterday who came east on 44, said there's nothing spectacular but it's a nice drive.
