Door Trail in Badlands National Park is really beautiful. Be sure to watch your step, there is a lot of loose dirt that could cause you to lose your footing and fall. Take it easy.

Hiking Notch Trail: Badlands National Park
A visit to Badlands National Park wouldn't be complete without hiking the Notch Trail. This trail is unique not only for the amazing landscape that it traverses, but for the ladder like steps you have to climb to access it's upper sections. The hike is relatively easy, but can get hot in the summer. There are also signs warning about the potential for rattlesnakes on the trail. This hike is a there and back hike. You come back the same way that you hike in because the trail dead ends at the edge of a 50 foot cliff where you can sit and take in views of the Badlands and the prairie beyond.
Badlands National park protects over 240 thousand acres of buttes, pinnacles, and mixed grass prairie. It was made a national park in the year 1978 and is such a unique place. The Badlands has several places to hike, picnic and learn about the flora, fauna, and ancient history of the area. The land was originally hunting grounds of many Native American tribes. It was originally the Lakota people that gave the area the origins of it's name. They called it Mako Sica or Land Bad.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to stay very long in Badlands National Park because it was only a stop on our way to somewhere else, but this park definitely merits exploration! We hope to return someday. Also unfortunately I accidentally deleted a huge chunk of the video that we captured from this trip! AAAARRRGH! Such is the life of a Youtuber!

RV Trip to the Badlands National Park, South Dakota
About us: We are Briggs on the Road...checking another item off our bucket list...traveling around the country in our RV. High school sweethearts, recently retired, grandparents to 6 sweet joys, previous entrepreneurs, and passionate about making memories together. A few have told us we are a little crazy...driving away from the normal...life is about making memories...so we are embracing the crazy and thanking God for this adventure!
❤️ Thank you for following us on this journey...we hope to inspire you to always follow your dreams! ❤️
This is the video about the lightening strike on our car. ????????
There is simply no place in the world quite like the Badlands. We think the Badlands National Park in South Dakota may be our one of our favorite parks! We are already planning our next visit, it is that awesome! Driving into the epic views from our front window had us completely in awe! The towering layered rock formations shifts from grassland to massive canyons and spans over 240,000 acres. There have been over 200 species of birds recorded in the park. Be sure to bring your binoculars!
This park is home to bison, longhorn sheep, bobcat, bison and the endangered black-footed ferret.
The first stop we made was the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. The rangers gave us maps, information on hikes and where we would mostly be able to view wildlife.
We started out driving the 40 mile Badlands Loop Road. There are dozens of places you can pull off and walk to observation areas to soak in all the beauty and take some amazing photos. Most of the hiking trails are accessible from this loop.
Be sure to stop at Roberts Prairie Dog Town. They are located where Rim Road and Sage Creek Road meet. These cute little fluffy critters are beyond precious and entertaining. They are chatty and busy and there are hundreds of them. It is their own little city and seem to enjoy showing off for you!
We loved our visit to the Badlands. The beauty it offers is breathtaking! Have you explored this National Park? If you have, leave us a comment of your favorite memory. ????

Our adventures in the Badlands continue!
Last week, you saw our first taste of Badlands National Park in South Dakota. But we definitely needed to get dirty and sweaty in order to really experience the park.

We headed out one morning on Saddle Pass Trail...well, at least we tried to. We parked at the trail head but could not find the marked trail for the life of us!
With a complete stranger along for the adventure, we all scrambled up a very non-trail route in order to reach the pinnacle of the hike and get a great view of most of the park. And it was stunning. What a unique and truly beautiful place we had found.
After our initial ascent to the peak, we dropped back down and were greeted by some Bighorn Sheep (two mommas and two babies). Not really greeted so much...they were just trying to get away from us, but they did startle us as they tried. (no, we weren't chasing them.)
So yes, always Beware in the Badlands!
But it was still one of the unique moments in nature that we treasure so much, and part of what keeps us coming back to the national parks over and over again. There is so much beauty to experience, so much wonder to absorb. The parks are, without a doubt, sacred spaces for our family.
After one more scramble to the top of another peak that somehow gave us even better views than the first spot, we hung out for a bit, ate a snack and just enjoyed the mild temps of the day with a view fit for kings.
In case you didn't know, we are fulltime RVers on an adventure around the continent since May 2017. As always, thank you so much for watching and for sharing this entire experience with us. We are extremely grateful and are so glad to have you along for the adventure. We want to do whatever we can to get you out exploring the national parks that we love so much. Let us know what we can do to help!

Hiking Badlands National Park
Hiking the Notch Trail and Saddle Pass Trail in Badlands National Park is an other-worldly adventure. The sandcastle hills are an amazing sight and are not as delicate as they look. Besides the view, the highlight might have been the ladder portion of the trail (wait your turn!). It was all part of our RV adventure out west in August 2017 that included Yellowstone NP, Glacier NP and Grand Tetons NP. There are lots more stories, photos and videos at our blog: adventureswithdougandjackie.com
Nature getaway in black hills sd
The Blacks Hills of South Dakota are known mostly for Mount Rushmore, but there is so much more that you can do. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway or a week long camping trip, there is something for everyone. Nature hikes are a great way to spend an afternoon without spending money. They can also be fun for the whole family, but pick the difficulty of trails accordingly or plan to get your kiddos feet wet if hiking along a river.
