This short trail climbs up the Badlands Wall to a view over the White River Valley. The trail ends where it connects with the Castle and Medicine Root Loop trails. Despite being one of the shorter trails in the park, Saddle Pass is one of the steepest, with approximately 300 feet of elevation change.
One of the shortest hikes in the Badlands is also the steepest -- Saddle Pass is a blast for those seeking a climb.
