"Castle Trail" Badlands National Park Things to Do Tip by Toughluck

Badlands National Park Things to Do: 76 reviews and 179 photos


This is a long trail, across the Prairies. It starts at either the Fossil Exhibit Parking area or the Trails Parking area near Cedar Pass. It's 5 miles (8 km) long, one way. All in the open. In October, the weather was great. Didn't need to worry about heat or needing lots of water. The rest of the year, take plenty of water and sunscreen.
