Devil's Tower National Monument is located in northeastern Wyoming, near the Belle Fourche River.  The unusual rock formation soars 1,267 feet high and is actually the hardened core of a volcano, exposed by erosion.  The towering rock was declared the first national monument by Theodore Roosevelt on September 24, 1906.  Decades later, on July 4, 1983, local rancher William Rogers made the first recorded climb of the monument.  Devil's Tower is surrounded by a 1,347 acre park and attracts visitors for climbing, hiking, cross-country skiing, and walking the 1.3 mile paved trail encircling the formation.  A visitor's center offers interpretive exhibits about the natural and cultural history of the park.
