This place has been on our bucket list since the movie "Close Encounter of the Third Kind" and it did not disappoint! We came the back road from Hulett and as we were turning right onto the road that takes you to the tower, there was a scene straight from the wild west - 2 longhorn steers and a buffalo... More

It was a really cool site and the drive there was beautiful but I'm not sure it was really worth the 3 hour round trip drive from Rapid City. It would definitely be worth the trip if you were heading west or coming from the west to see other things but not so much so if you're heading east from... More

When driving towards the Tower, not that impressive to me, as you can also see three other "mountains" to the West of Devil's Tower that are about the same height and size - just not eroded the same. However it is the interlocking basalt columns (like the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland) that makes Devil's Tower so much more remarkable.... More

The Red Beds Trail was a great hike with some amazing views. For sure take it if you want to get away from the majority of the people and enjoy some quiet.

You see this huge chunk of rock for miles away on the horizon and just wonder what is it, so you drive on and then find out.

Awesome rock! Enjoyed the paved-path walk around it. Saw some wildlife along the way. Loved seeing several sets of climbers scaling the walls; glad this is allowed.

Terrific trip. We walked the trail at the base of the Monument and were amazed by all the climbers! Not for the faint of heart for sure. It is a great Park!!

We went there about 7 pm and it was a very warm day. The trail was very easy to walk round all tarmac. The tower itself from every side was just a wow factor and as we were going round there were deer on the path which added to a very enjoyable walk

Visited this famous site after a freak April snowstorm. It made the visit even more stunning than expected. Unfortunately, the trails were icy and slippery, but this did not detract from the visit one iota. It turned out to be an almost religious experience. Devil's Tower is a "must see".

I have always wanted to visit Devils Tower since falling in love with it through the film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". This place is awesome and no photograph or film can really do it justice. It has to be visited to be appreciated. At the visitors centre I learn a lot, both from the excellent displays and from...
