If you plan to visit Devil’s Tower National Monument, I highly recommend attending one of the Ranger Led walks along the Tower Trail. Park Ranger Dennis led the walk I went on and he did a great job bringing the history of the park alive. He also knew more stories about the Tower that aren’t found in the park reading materials. Our walk started out with 5 of us and ended with over 20. Every time we made a stop so Ranger Dennis could tell us something, we picked up more people.
The Tower Trail is 1.3 miles. It is paved, but there are rolling hills. If you walk the trail counter clockwise you will walk down the one steep hill vs walking up it.
