Why go to Devils Tower National Monument?
“Devils Tower packs in so many different stories and aspects of geology and ecology,” said Tyler Devine, lead interpretive park ranger at Devils Tower National Monument. “It’s a natural wonder with a deep sense of human history.” Considered sacred by Northern Plains Tribes and Indigenous people, Devils Tower has held spiritual significance for thousands of years and continues to do so today. In the 1800s, the sky-piercing formation also served as a summer meeting place for early settlers. Continuing its legacy, the Tower remains a gathering place for rock climbers, Indigenous people, local residents, and visitors.
