We took this hike the first week in April which was good because it wasn’t too hot yet. A sandy barren hike until you get to the Devils Playground. Very beautiful, different and quiet. So glad we had our gps for much of the hike. We did it on a Wednesday which made it easier to get the permit than on a Saturday.

I can’t recommend this trail highly enough. It is remote and somewhat poorly marked, but also well within cell service for real-time GPS map updates if/when you need them.The rocks and petrified wood are gorgeous (see my photos). I’m shocked that a place like this doesn’t have more enthusiastic reviews. In some ways, I hate to give up such a gem, but I also hope to see more people visiting and reviewing this great trail!

There are only three permits every week but we got it! The scenery of badland is amazing, but I don't recommend you to go there alone, as you will not meet other persons in this area except a devil~
