Devils Tower, An Evocative Setting For Many Types Of Experiences And Forms Of Expression A geologic feature protrudes out of the rolling prairie that surrounds the Black Hills. The 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.

My wife has arthritis in knees and back, but she did better than I did on inclines. Bring a hiking stick for balance. Saw a large family group of deer that let my wife walk up to them for pictures; got within about five feet. Nice, friendly neighborhood. Off season not crowded.

A great hike. We did this trail on a Sunday. Once away from the crowds in the main parking area we saw only four people, awesome! There are a few ups and downs, but nothing too strenuous, even for a flatlander.

This is a great trail for beginners. It is paved and pretty level so people in wheel chairs or children in baby strollers can be pushed around Devils Tower. Its pretty amazing seeing the tower up close and some days you can see people climbing up it! Near the base of the Tower are some large boulders that everyone enjoys climbing. It can get pretty crowded on peak days like weekends, so go early if you can. Here is a virtual hike of this trail on youtube! https://youtu.be/g9IJoLhsiJY

I am from Illinois and this trail was hard for me on the incline. The landscape around Devils Towers was just awesome. Loved the part through the red rocks. 7/3/2016

Great trail, very short so good for family. Didn't try the other but this one was very scenic. Didn't expect the surrounding woods to be so good looking. Don't forget to climb the boulders... but watch your footing.

Good trail and not too busy in the morning. Heavy vehicle traffic was entering the area as we left around 10. Great views of valley and tower.

Good hike with the kids! They loved the Rock scramble! Rangers were very nice and helpful along the trail.

Very nice hike. A more traditional hike compared to the shorter loop which is paved. I also added a section from the Valley View loop to extend it to 3.5 miles. Hike features varied terrains, from pine forest, to the red beds, to the flat prairie of the prairie dogs.
