A nice quick walk on a sunny day. Not difficult by any means but not too boring either.

Nice hike. The trail is in good shape and well marked. I was the only person on the trail. For best pics go early or late to get the best sun on the tower

Mix of hiking along the ridge and a valley next to the Devil’s Tower. It gives you some different looks at the Tower. Fairly short (1.5 miles) but some nice benches and lookout points. Much quieter than the trails closer to the Tower.

Nice trail! Not touristy like the other trails. All the pine in the area makes the air smell so good! Very calming and relaxing, a couple of steep areas so be careful with children.

Great views of the tower throughout, takes you away from the crowd/zoo by the visitor center.

I hiked the trails around the tower and then drove to the parking lot trailhead for this one. I ran into no one. So peaceful and much quieter than the tower trails. Saw several deer. Great views of the tower as well.

Pleasant walk along ridge overlooking the tower, then drops down into the valley to return.

Much quieter trail than the inner loop. Great views looking up to the tower, and a shady pocket valley that allows you to cool off for a few minutes while walking the loop.

The combination of Red Beds and Joyner trails are highly recommended for a nice loop trail. Gorgeous views of Devil's Tower from different perspectives, beautiful walks in grass prairies, and plenty of shade among the pine trees. The smell of pine trees makes this trail very pleasant. Easy to moderate.
