Things To Do


Ranger Programs

Ranger programs are typically offered during the park's summer season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day (late May to early September). Programs often include guided walks along the Tower Trail, short talks outside the visitor center, and evening programs at the campground amphitheater.


Hiking at the Tower is a popular way to experience the park, but several of our trails are lightly traveled.

    Rock Climbing

    Technical rock climbing is allowed in the monument. All persons planning to climb or scramble above the boulder field are required to register before their climb and check in when they return. Climbing permits are available at the kiosk in the parking area or at the visitor center.

    More Things to Do

    Circle of Sacred Smoke Sculpture

    Located near the picnic area, the Circle of Sacred Smoke, by sculptor Junkyu Muto, honors the American people as a gesture of world peace. The sculpture is designed to help raise visitor awareness of the importance of Devils Tower to over twenty affiliated tribes. The sculpture, one in a planned series of seven, represents the first puff of smoke from a newly lit pipe and placed to frame the Tower when viewed from its location across from the picnic area.

    Junior Ranger Program

    Junior Ranger booklets may be obtained at the visitor center. We recommend at least one hour to complete the program. Upon completion of the booklet, Junior Rangers will be officially sworn in and given a special badge. Junior Ranger patches may be purchased in the bookstore.

    Winter activities

    Caution - trails are not maintained during the winter months. The road to the visitor center, picnic area and Circle of Sacred Smoke sculpture are open year around.
