Badlands National Park Where to Ride

Cyclists who prefer paved roads may want to ride on a portion of the park's main loop road. Remember that the road can be quite steep. If you have an automobile shuttle available, you may want to begin your ride at the Pinnacles Overlook, 8 miles south of the town of Wall and end your ride at the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. This 22 mile route is mostly downhill, although there are several steep passes that you must climb.

Riders of all terrain or touring bikes suitable for gravel roads may want to ride on the Sage Creek Rim Road along the northern boundary of the park. The road will take you from the Pinnacles Overlook past a prairie dog town, and on to spectacular views of the Badlands Wilderness Area. This is not a loop route.

During summer, vehicle traffic is heavy, winds are high, and temperatures are hot.
