Located on the western end of the Badlands Loop Road and arguably the most spectacular of the overlooks. Photos don't do it justice. more »
This is a very cool overlook. Buffalo and big horn sheep can be seen from here if you look around! The parking is easy to get into and out of. It makes for a nice and quick stop with nice views for a photo.
The first beautiful Badlands overlook. The views are stunning! Looking out you can see the many different colors. If SD has had a wet spring, the whole area smells sweet thanks to the Yellow Sweetclover grass that grows. There are a few ADA accessible walkways for all to enjoy the view. There are also bathrooms here, no more until you reach the visitor's center. Stop and enjoy the creation!
