The badlands are beautiful and alien. You really feel like you're on another planet. The hike is very long and has a lot of ups and downs to see cool stuff. Stay in the main washes (the parking lot entrance) and you'll be able to see a lot.

A tip though, I went after it rained and the ground was like a sponge. The mud was very slippery and there aren't many places to kick your shoes clean. Go when it's been dry a while because the hills are made of dirt and will be unclimbable when wet. Being a lunch and start early!
