Whether you go for the native lore, the geological mystery, or the rare beauty, the first national monument of the U S is definitely an impressive visit. This was an awesome visitor center, and the gal working was the most friendly and pleasant person we met on our trip. We did the walk around the monument, saw columns that have... More

I never saw the movie, but my husband was determined to get to Devil's Tower. What an unbelievably beautiful place. When you first get to the Visitors Center and head up the hill it seems like it's all uphill but once you just get past the initial upward hike, you can take the pathway (about a 45 minute walk all...

There is not much inside. But since you are there you should get in and take a look. Few souvenirs to be bought plus historical info on the walls, that's it. Get out of the visitor center and take a hike!

Need to go here and get the information on how this monolith remained behind after the landscape was eroded away, the history for the native Americans, the climbers, and the environment.

Staff is very knowledgeable about the monument and the surrounding area. They know the various road conditions and alternate ways of getting to Rapid City.

Loved the legends and the scenery. We took our elderly mother with us who is 79 and the path to the first overlook is paved, which made walking easier. The incline was not steep and with a few stops to rest we made it just fine. Wheelchair accessible.
