Bear Country is about 8 miles outside (per AAA) Rapid City proper on Rt. 16. It seemed like a much shorter distance than this to me. The drive is quick and easy.

Thunderhead is on Rt. 44, also outside Rapid. I remember it being around 15 minutes outside. We visited this attraction, but honestly it was the only attraction in the Black Hills we found overpriced. There's really not much to it. I think we spent 30 minutes tops. There are just so many things to see in the hills that I would focus on other things rather than this one.

Have a good trip.
