  • Not to be missed! This trail is a long enough loop for non walkers, although easy. It is always possible to make a half - you can not get lost. The landscapes are magical in the morning sun beating on these amazing rocks.

  • It is amazing what nature forms as times. The outcrops were stunning. The Badlands are a little out of the way but worth the drive. Take time to get out and walk to enjoy the surroundings. 
  • Worth the drive before sunrise. (Door trail on the east side of the badlands). Don't miss the sky views with clouds circling above and behind the direct sunrise.
