Follows the Oregon, Mormon and California Trails.
Scenic sand hills and lake views near Ogallala, wide open prairie north to Scotts Bluff.
Traffic is minimal, route is well-maintained state highway, although some surfaces little better than chip and seal.
Chimney Rock National Monument is a must-stop - excellent museum tells of hardships experienced by pioneer travelers.
Several historical markers along route.
Services are few, start with a full tank and carry water.
