Not difficult, although will need to be reasonably energetic and not afraid of heights. It's a quick and fun hike that puts you in the middle of some fascinating terrain. Enjoyed it.
This trail was so much fun. There is a bit of exposure as you are walking along an edge, but my 10 year old did just fine. I love that you can walk anywhere in this park, it makes exploring more interesting. It's windy at the top, watch your step and have a great hike!
During our visit to the Badlands we did the fossil trail and other exploring at some of the view points but our favorite was the Notch Trail. It is a challenging hike with little shade so bring lots of water. The log ladder is fun and our 5 and 8 year old did just fine. Once we made it to... 更多
Perfect hike for a short visit to the Badlands. It branched out to a Y with 2 view areas. Not crowded. Hot and dry when we hiked, looks like there is a small waterfall if it rains. The ladder was interesting, not bad if you take your time.
Took my teen to this one and turned out to be their favorite part of the entire trip. A must see to climb the ladder and get to the breathtaking view. Not for the faint of heart but soooo worth it.
Made one stop and walked all three. These are very easy trails with great panoramic views at the end. We didn't move the car from the Notch/Window end to go the Door Trail. We wanted a bit more walking but it was awful walking past the restrooms - I recommend moving your car.
Fun, challenging and spectacular views! Wear sturdy shoes/boots and don't forget to take your camera. Loved the challenge of the ladder. It is, as other reviewers have said, a little more difficult coming down than going up. However it is very doable for most people! Enjoy!
This is the trail you want to go on to get the best views and be surrounded by the rock formations that make The Badlands so great. If afraid of heights though (like my wife) you probably won't be able to finish this trail. Thrill seekers will find amazing places to climb up high for the best views.
