"Tower Trail" Devils Tower Things to Do Tip by PinkFloydActuary
Devils Tower Things to Do: 26 reviews and 67 photos
So you hear about people that shell out their $10, come in, snap a picture, and then leave. I don't understand that (why not just take a picture from the side of the road and save the cash?) The second most popular thing to do is hike the Tower trail, a 1.3 mile trail that loops around the tower.
For my money, the best side of the tower is the one you see from the visitor centers parking lot, but you should see this remarkable site from all angles. The toughest part of the hike is right at the beginning, as you have a short, but steep path from the visitor center before you start the loop. Once you're on the main loop, you'll have a few hills here and there, but nothing too awful. The path itself is paved (although some areas are starting to show some wear.) As you head around the tower, be on the lookout for signs of wildlife (we saw some deer in the woods.) Stop to read the placards and take in the many different faces of the tower (please view the photos with this tip to see some of the different angles.)
In total, the hike takes 30 minutes to an hour depending on your pace.
