This loop shows bronze replicas of fossils found in the Badlands. This was a good exhibit.

This is a board wAlked trail, no idea why it's labeled moderate on here. Very easy. BUT tons of opportunities to off trail explore. Saw some great wildlife.

This trail is okay, especially if you like fossils and the history of the park. A couple of other trails are much better to explore if you are short on time.

Sorry to say but I didn't think it was worth stopping. It was interesting to read about the history of the park when it comes to the fossils they have found there but as far as a hike goes it is lame

A short, yet interesting trail in Badlands NP. The trail is a constructed boardwalk with exhibits along the way.
