Hiking alone in Black Hills/Badlands/Devil's Tower?

Jump to last reply

I'm spending 4 days in South Dakota next month to see Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, the Badlands and Devil's Tower (WY). It looks like it will be a solo trip. I was wondering if mid-June will be busy enough that it will be safe to do some hikes alone, that there will be enough people out and about, that I won't really be alone. I'm not worried about wild animals, but rather, creeps who might get bad ideas seeing a woman hiking alone.

When I was in Austria years ago, there was a hike to a castle ruin that I wanted to take, but there were two unsavory guys that clearly took note of me and I erred on the side of caution and aborted the hike before it even began since it didn't to be a well trafficked hike.
