Badlands National Park Sights

Badlands Loop Road

Updated 11/25/2013

Fodor's Review

The simplest drive is on two-lane Badlands Loop Road. The drive circles from exit 110 off Interstate 90 through the park and back to the interstate at exit 131. Start from either end and make your way around to the various overlooks along the way. Pinnacles and Yellow Mounds overlooks are outstanding places to examine the sandy pink- and brown-toned ridges and spires distinctive to the badlands. At a certain point the landscape flattens out slightly to the north, revealing

spectacular views of mixed-grass prairies. The Cedar Pass area of the drive has some of the park's best trails.
