Hike the Red Beds Trail

Elevation Gain

Route Type

Loop

Added by Andrew Jaeger

One of a few great trails around Devil's Tower, great views and few people on this loop.

The trailhead is located in the same parking lot as the Tower Trail at the base of the tower. 

This is a 2.8 mile loop with approximately 500 feet of elevation gain. This trail provides great views of both the Tower and the Belle Fourche River Valley. You will drop nearly all 500 feet of elevation in the first half of the trail and gain it all in the second half of the loop.

There were not too many people on the trail in October, but anticipate heavy traffic at this National Monument during peak tourist season.
