Devils Tower National Monument


An astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie surrounding the Black Hills. This site is considered Sacred to the Lakota and other tribes that have a connection to the area. Hundreds of parallel cracks make it one of the finest traditional crack climbing areas in North America. Devils Tower entices us to explore and define our place in the natural and cultural world.

We were there on a fogged in day and didn't actually see anything except the bottom of the tower. However, it was still a great experience and the forest rangers answered all of our questions and gave us the history and background of this astounding work of nature. Despite the weather, we still consider it worth the trip out of the way (about an hour added to our trip) to see. The annual National Parks Pass is valid for admission and definitely makes it worth the trip - especially if it is in bad weather.

This is definitely a national Park service one should visit! It’s easily seen from different points miles away with its very distinct tower formation. There’s several sites for parking the within the national monument and quite a few trails both around the tower as well as other locations within the monument. Not long after driving into the monument, you’ll notice a prairie dog town that is also well worth a visit!

Went out of the way to see this again. As an adult, the experience is more amazing. Nature at its best. Park is beautiful and the drive is nice and peaceful. Hotels for those getting there later than expected or those spending more time at the park than originally intended. Take your time. Breathe in the history, mysticism and culture surrounding this magnificent place. It is one of a kind and worth try he journey to see up close.

I went in mid April and was lucky enough to get a nice sunny day. The visitor center was open but there were not a lot of other visitors there so the walk around the monument was ideal. I also took carried my 1yo daughter and at just over a mile, the hike was very doable. There is a lot of interesting information as you make your way around and of course, the monument itself is very impressive! I would certainly recommend the trip, even to those with little ones.

If you are anywhere on the road within 100 miles of here, it is a must see. Beautiful lands and stunning views. Feel free to go around the boulder fields and get some exercise in too. Beautiful trails surround this unique monument, I would highly recommend both. See it. Love it. Remember it.
