Wall is a town in Pennington County, South Dakota, United States. Step out of the city life by going to Notch Trail and Roberts Prairie Dog Town. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Door Trail and Castle Trail. Explore Wall's surroundings by going to Badlands National Park (Panorama Point Overlook, Cliff Shelf Nature Trailhead, &more). There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Big Badlands Overlook, take some stellar pictures from Yellow Mounds Overlook, don't miss a visit to Pinnacles Overlook, and brush up on your military savvy at Delta-09 Missile Silo.

To find more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Wall online route planner.
