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.

USA Natl Parks are wonderful and extraordinary PLACES. It is important to note they are PET-FRIENDLY, just prefer to keep it simple. You can't leave pets unattended or take on the trails, or it's limited to the parking lot. They have dangerous wildlife, or and must be preserved. Most pet owners are responsible, a few who in the past, didn't clean up after their dog or cat changed it for everyone and that is easiest.

This place is gorgeous!! Love hiking this trail! Would personally prefer that the park officials would leave nature alone and not add anymore human touches to this beautiful work of nature, but the hike is still amazing! There was quite the wait get into the park, and parking itself tried some patience.. but boy, it's worth it. ** please make sure to bring a water bottle if you decide to hike around the entire mountain, I can't always be there to hand them out to those trying to make it without :)

Visited Devil's Tower for the first time yesterday. We had to sit in line quite awhile in able to buy a pass ($20) and head up to the tower. The drive was beautiful! When you get up to the parking areas, it can be very difficult to find a parking space. The area is clean and so were the bathrooms! The trail that goes around the Tower was great! It did have a lot of ups and down sections, but nothing to incredibly steep. The best thing was all the seating along the trail. You could sit and rest if needed, or just enjoy watching the climbers or scenery! I will definitely visit again!

Pay the fee... hike next to this monument! It is a 100% more amazing experience to stand under this beautiful treasure. Tower trail is great, paved, easy walk, great for kids, but A LOT of people. Highly recommend heading off road for the Red Beds Trail. Beautiful! 2.5 mile loop, not for the faint of heart, difficult for small kids. Wow! Wish we had time for all the trails.

Love this place! Make sure you walk the paved 1.3 mile trail around the monument. Most importantly stop from time to time, find a rock to sit on, and just take in the grandeur of this place! Also please be sure not to disturb the prayer cloths and bundles on the trees, this includes watching your children to make sure they don't as well. Can't wait to come back here!
