I always make it a goal to do more than just “drive through” a state. In the case of Nebraska, the Scotts Bluff National Monument was a great place to stop and stretch my legs on the way from Denver to South Dakota.
I was pleasantly surprised how beautiful this place was, and how perfect the Saddle Rock Trail was for a quick stop. At about 3 miles, it was perfect for a quick afternoon hike to break up the monotony of the road.
There was also a road that seemed to go up to the summit, but I didn’t take the time to drive it, but I’d recommend that you do. I didn’t really notice it until I was on my way out.
