Beautiful! Highly recommend arriving right before sunset
Lots of chances to see wildlife. Get ready for lots of sun and danger of rattle snake.
one of a kind rock formations
This is a largely flat trail with spectacular views. You may see some big horn sheep. The bighorn sheep seem to be more active in the early afternoon. It is possible to extend the hike through some short out and back trails along the way.
amazing to drive through!
Drove right though the park and took some great shots. However the park can be pretty redundant with rocks and prairie dogs
Lots of great views. Very populated area. Fun place to look for fossils. Very hot, and dry as you would expect.
Very scenic, hot and dry so take plenty of water on the short hikes
My kids, age 5 and 9, my wife and I recently hiked off path and thoroughly loved looking for fossils. The rugged and sharps rocks deserve respect, but are perfect for hiking on. Beautiful landscape. Make sure to stop at the big visitors center (Rafiel?). There's lots to see.
At a loss for words. I LOVE this place!
Dry and hot hike, but amazing views of the rock formations. Watch out for rattlesnakes.
a Saturday hike through the Badlands is awesome!!! great trails unlike any other I'm at awe. South Dakota is a wonderland!!!
