Loved this trail. I would rate it as easy, even with kiddos. No packs needed. Our two toddlers walked the whole thing easily. 12 posts including end of trail marker. Lets you get a feel for the geography of the park.

While this is a short little adventure, it was probably the most active fun my kids (ages 13, 11 & 10) have had in a LONG time. They don't necessarily share my love of hiking, but this was super exciting. They could run all over the place and climb, and all they had to do was make it to the next pole marker. Definitely check out this "trail" if you're in the Badlands NP.

This was very scenic for a short hike. We went in the morning hours so it was much cooler than trying it in the afternoon. There were several different places you could go off the main trail.

Fantastic trail. Plenty of opportunities to go off the trail and multiple routes to the same endpoint.
