The less bends the better.. can you take it below the floor and get to an exterior wall? Round metal duct would be best.

50 - 60 ft to take were I would like to take it. I could take it closer but the foundation is really low in that area. 50-60 ft to get to the back of the house where the foundation is much higher

How about a roof top exhaust?
I just installed a bathroom fan with a roof vent. I would suggest that a dryer vent would be much the same.
If you live in a frosty area, the pipe must be insulated to prevent condensation from forming and running back inside.

I would say that there would be less a problem, than with a 60' horizontal run.
From time to time, it may be necessary to vacuum the pipe out with a Shop Vac.
Hopefully, it would be a straight up, vertical run.
Dryer vents do require cleaning on a regular basis!
