The Devil's Tower is located near Casper, Wyoming.
This large national monument sits about 1,200 feet above the beautiful Wyoming landscape. The Belle Fourche River also sits below the monument.
This is a rather unique monument in Wyoming as it's a volcanic formation. A visitors center is located at the base of the tower. There are pictures of the tower from the time it first developed to present day hanging in the center.
There are eight miles of trails to walk along with great views of the plains of Wyoming. One of the more popular trails stretches for 1.3 miles and traverses around the monument. Other trails wind through the woodlands near the base of the monument and closer to the top. Over 60 kinds of flowers have been seen growing in the area. Guests can take a tour with a ranger to get more information about the monument and the surrounding area or take a self-guided tour, exploring at their own pace. There are several speakers who come to the monument in the spring and summer to talk about various topics dealing with nature and the Devil's Tower. There are also moon walks in the evenings during the summer.
