Medicine Root Trail - Badlands National Park
Photo By Mark Gubbins

  • Title: Medicine Root Trail - Badlands National Park
  • State/Province/Region: South Dakota
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Hwy. 240 -- ( Badlands Loop Road )
  • Nearest Town: Interior, S.D.
  • Brief Directions: From the Ben Reifel Visitor Center, drive northwest on the Badlands Loop Road, for about 1 1/2 miles. On the right side of the road, is the parking area for the Saddle Pass Trail. The Saddle Pass Trail is a fairly steep and strenuous 1/4 mile hike, that will take you to the Medicine Root Trail, which is a much easier hiking trail. It is also away from the typical overlooks, that most visitors stop at, so you shouldn't have to worry about being crowded.
  • Notes: There is a box located at the Saddle Pass trailhead. Inside is a form for you to sign in and sign out, so the park rangers know you are in the back country.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Gear: Tripod, polarizing filter, hiking shoes, water
