When visiting Jackson Hole, Wyoming on your vacation, you can't miss stopping by Devil's Tower National Monument. You must view this incredible rock formation, once completely hidden below the surface, time passing and erosion stripping away the soft rock layers to reveal this famous attraction.
President Theodore Roosevelt declared this the first national monument in the US in 1906. It is called Bear Lodge by several of the northern plains tribes and considered scared by many American Indians.
Pines cover the park, with over 1300 acres of woodlands, grasslands and forest. You'll spot plenty of wildlife, too, from deer to prairie dogs. Of course, rock climbing is a favorite, with a 100-hundred-year history of climbing here. But there's so much to do, even if you aren't a climbing fan. You can hike the seven miles of trails, the top pick being the paved Tower Trail that circles the Devil's Tower itself.
