Although Badlands National Park's name might not be the most inviting, its landscape of pinnacles, eroded buttes, spires, and an expansive, pristine mixed-grass prairie remain enticing.
On the 6th (Sun), explore the striking landscape of Badlands National Park and then cruise along Loop Road. Here are some ideas for day two: hike along Notch Trail, then take in the dramatic natural features at Big Badlands Overlook, then explore the striking landscape at Yellow Mounds Overlook, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall.

For more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Badlands National Park online trip builder .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 65°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
