Cheyenne County defies expectations with its array of incredible attractions and activities awaiting your discovery!

The Arikaree Breaks

Located on the extreme northern edge of Cheyenne County

This area of extremely rough terrain, with its deep ravines and gullies is a marked contrast to the plains generally associated with the area. The breaks were formed by wind deposited sand, silt, and clay particles, called loess. After deposition, the loess has undergone spectacular processes of head cutting and sidewall cutting the advancing tributaries of the Arikaree River and the South Fork of the Republican River.
