Devils Tower National Monument

Devils Tower Road Trip

Devils Tower Road Trip

This day trip route takes you into two states – South Dakota and Wyoming –  with the main destination being Devils Tower, America’s first national monument.  Start your trip at the center of the nation – literally – in Belle Fourche, SD, then drive across the state line and into Wyoming.  You’ll climb from the plains into the forested Bear Lodge Mountains, see the little towns of Aladdin, Alva and Hulett and encounter the awesome profile of Devils Tower looming in the distance.  At the Tower, tour the Visitor Center and walk the 1.3 Tower Trail that encircles the rock.  Watch for climbers. Complete your daytrip with stops at the free Crook County Museum in Sundance and the jail where “The Sundance Kid” spent 18 months for horse theft. Finish the day with the Vore Buffalo Jump  kill site near Beulah, and the attractions of Spearfish, SD
