Great little hike.

Easy hike through prairie dog town. Would be great for kids.

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.

Beautiful hike...as an avid fitness person I thought it was easy to moderate. Ran into about 3-4 groups. I branched off and did the valley view trail and looped back onto red rocks trail.

Easy hike. A must-do if you go to Devils Tower. Lost of people on a rainy weekday.

Easy hike with outstanding, varying views of the geological structure. Great information tables that explain the history, geology, and the Native American legends. Did not have any sightings of alien spacecraft playing music by John Williams!

quick, easy paved trail with amazing, close views of the tower. can be slick when raining, otherwise, an awesome trail for all ages

loved it awesome views

Great, easy paved trail around the tower. Make sure to show up early - the early morning lighting is wonderful and so is the lack of crowds!

Easy hike and gives you a great view of tower from different angles. We went around 6:30pm and it wasn’t to busy and we saw a mama deer and her babies.

Accessible, unique, lots of friendly people.

great trail with wonderful views of the tower and surrounding countryside. If you go on a warm day take lots of water.

Nice 2 hour hike with varied terrain and views, met only one group, this during Sturgis week.

Loved it!

Solid three and a half stars. Definitely go counter clockwise, as others have said, makes for an easier ascent. Very few people on this trail, and easy enough for my eleven year old, and fourteen year old to do without any complaining. The red hills and trail portion was pretty neat, and we got some nice pictures of both the devil's tower, and the valley.

Good little hike around the tower away from the crowds on the paved trail.

Nice little walk around the tower. Easy for kids and folks with mobility issues. Ive been to the tower enough that it's lost it wow factor for me, but great walk for a first timer to the tower.

Excellent trail for people of all ages. Come early in the morning, 5am-7am if you want to avoid the crowds and have a better chance of seeing undisturbed wildlife. People start rolling in about 6:30. Great trail for kids!

A quick easy walk around this incredible monument. Went as the sun was going down and finished as a night hike. Very cool.

Loved this trail, winds through pretty forest & beautiful rock formations. Not difficult & some off-shoots to add distance. Plenty of shade & nice S Dakota breezes to keep it fun!!

This was a great hike, and the view was Wow..

Knocked this one out on July 1st. Walked all the way around and then climbed the rocks in front to the spot you’re allowed to. It’s dangerous and strenuous to climb up there, but an excellent view is your reward.

Our family really enjoyed this trail. Just so many different environments on this trail to see and enjoy as you hike through. Well marked, no scrambling and you have a good view of the tower as you make your way. We only met about 8 people on this trail. The parking lot was packed, we waited behind almost 40 cars to get into the park, but most people just walk up to the tower, take a picture a leave. This trail was very peaceful and the people we met on the trail were very friendly and seemed to be enjoying the trail as much as we were.

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.
