Devils Tower National Monument Professional Review and Guide
"On the western fringe of the Bear Lodge Mountains, 55 miles northeast of Gillette. 3 separate hiking trails around a towering volcanic formation.Beginning at the south end of the visitor center parking lot, the nearly 4 miles of this well-marked and easy-to-follow trail will take you on a grand tour through the many different worlds that immediately surround Devils Tower. Ponderosa forests, open meadows, cactused badlands, and river-carved sedimentary layers make appearances. All the while, the awesome faces of Devils Tower loom over the various landscapes."
--Bill Hunger, Hiking Wyoming (Falcon Guides).
My wife and I hiked the 3 mile trail the past two June’s. Both times the sun was bright and we both got hot while on the south side of the tower. The scenery as fantastic on this hike traversing the pine forest on the north, the rolling plain’s environment on the east, and the fire scared forest (few trees remaining) on the south. This is a nice afternoon hike that we will make again when we are in the area.
