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.
