about the byway
The Standing Rock National Native American Scenic Byway, an 86 mile route, follows a stretch of highway that climbs up and down the Missouri River breaks, runs past buffalo herds and eagle’s nests. History comes alive on this journey as the great Lakota spiritual leader Sitting Bull lived and died here; Meriwether Lewis & William Clark stopped 14 times, famous mountain men like Jim Bridger and Jedediah Smith passed through and it is the final resting place of Sakakawea.
