Devils Tower National Monument
Devils Tower is an incredible geologic feature that projects from the undulating prairie enveloping the Black Hills. A sacred site to more than twenty Native American tribes including the Lakota, Devils Tower is also known as Mato Tipila or Bear Lodge. Hundreds of side-by-side cracks in the rock make it one of the most exceptional crack climbing areas in North America. Aside from the rock climbing, Devils Tower offers visitors eight miles of foot trails and some incredible views. Devils Tower entices us to explore and define our place in the natural and cultural world. In fact, Devils Tower is such a special place that in 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt made Devils Tower America's First National Monument.
