Devils Tower National Monument

Just across the South Dakota border in Wyoming is a site worth the drive from Rapid City, Devils Tower National Monument. It towers over 1,267 feet above the Belle Fourche River, creating one of the most striking naturally formed landscapes in the country. The astounding geologic feature stretches directly upward, an isolated monolith looming high above the forests and rolling prairie meadows surrounding the Black Hills. A formation so striking that in 1906 President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed it as the first national monument. 

Devils Tower is located northwest on US Hwy 14 and WY Hwy 24. It’s an enjoyable hour and forty-minute scenic cruise through the Black Hills to Devils Tower National Monument, making it an easy addition to an already epic vacation while staying in Rapid City.
