Walk the 1.5 mile Joyner Ridge Trail loop with great views of Devil's Tower, one of the most iconic rocks in America, as well as abundant wildlife and flowers. For a longer walk you can combine the Joyner ridge trail with the Red Beds trail for a ~5 mile walk that encircles the entire tower.
There is a nice sized parking lot at Joyner Ridge. From the parking lot, the Devil's Tower looms very large! From the parking lot the trail is obvious and easy to follow. There are occasional overlooks or different vantage points from the trail. The Joyner Ridge trail makes a 1.5 mile loop that is mostly level and easy to follow. If doing the Red Bed trail make sure to have a trail map to ensure you follow the correct trails for the roughly 5 mile loop. Also note, the site is sacred to local Indian tribes and should be treated with respect whether day hiking or climbing.
