Short hike around the oldest national monument in the USA in beautiful northeastern Wyoming.
Devils Tower National Monument was the first National Monument in the United States. In 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt visited the extraordinary rock tower in the northeast corner of Wyoming and founded the 1347-acre Devils Tower National Monument, to ensure that this stunning spot is protected nature. The developed Devils Tower Trail is located at 867 meters above sea level and leads about 2.3 km through pine forests and past huge boulders. For the Indians, the 265 feet high and 150 m wide tower is a sacred place where the grizzly bear lives.
"No two sides are alike. Notice how the Tower’s appearance changes as you walk through the boulder field and the ponderosa pine forest. From the eroded columns on the south to the smoother north side, the Tower has many faces. On the west side, the fallen, broken columns tell the Tower’s future."
