AMAZING formation that you must see! There is a very nice pathway about a mile long that goes all the way around the tower. Rock climbers travel from around the world to climb the tower, be sure to look for them!

109 mile gravel trail that used to be a train track, made into a hiking/biking trail! The route is best ridden north to south. There are a couple of places that rent bicycles and have shuttle services (google Mickelson Trail bike rental).

Located in Spearfish Canyon, only about a mile long round trip. The trail follows a creek so your legs/feet may get wet, very popular trail so you’ll probably see some fellow hikers especially on the weekend.
